HOUSE IN ARROWTOWN, NZ

January 13, 2012

Finally a feeling of resolution for this most picturesque of blank canvases!

It can be a complex process designing for a site as unconstrained and abundant with opportunities as this. Every possibility opens up a path to yet another, and it’s no easy task taking the first step when every new idea is as exciting and as pertinent as the last. That said, the design arrived with resounding certainty – the planning is strong and logical, offering an elegant sequence of events as one moves through the building. The spaces manage to embrace the best of the surrounding views without being dominated by them, and there are strong regional influences in the architectural detail and materials used. We’re very much looking forward to construction… and of course the site meetings!
