Design and Contract Documentation
With breathtaking views of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu, this steep elevated site presented the opportunity to literally wrap an elongated structure around the contour of the hill making the most of the dynamic views.

From the exterior the residence is visually divided into three main areas – informal living, formal living and the bedroom wing. The lean-too roofs over each of these allows for clerestory windows to achieve all day sunlight to the spaces as well as expansive glazing to the south facing views.

While the Dowman’s residence is a moderately large home of Formal and Informal Living areas, 3 bedrooms and a Guest Apartment, this is balanced by the casual building form and choice of natural materials.
