A new build in Queenstown featuring stunning views of The Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu inspired a unique house to complement the setting.Save this picture!© Mark ScowenSave this picture!© Mark ScowenA solid mass buried into the ground at the basement level provides the functional spaces of the house, garage, laundry, rumpus room, and the essential drying room for winter and summer sports. Entry to the house for visitors however is via a sheltered northern courtyard at street level. This is encased in cast-in-situ walls, allowing only a glimpse of the magnificent views revealed as you enter the house at mid-level. The peaks of the top floor roofline follow the contours of the mountain range beyond and provide an intriguing accent.Save this picture!© Mark ScowenSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Mark ScowenThe mid-level of the house contains the kitchen and dining areas and also a sunken lounge, perfect for a hot toddy and fondue session in front of the fire after a hard day on the slopes. Sliding doors open seamlessly to the view and a substantial terrace beyond. Neighbors have been blocked by the use of cast insitu walls. These provide both privacy and a sense of solidity, in contrast to the uninterrupted glazing of the living level.Save this picture!© Mark ScowenThe feature staircase is expressed as a glazed slot running through the center of the house and again ensures the view is unimpeded. Bedrooms and bathrooms are situated on the top floor and in contrast to the concrete of the mid level this has been encased in a dark metal cladding. High-level windows allow the northern sun to enter and the glazing fills the void between the floating roof forms and the walls.Save this picture!© Mark ScowenProject gallerySee allShow lessCo – Working Office / AMDSelected ProjectsPhilosophical Seminar at the Cathedral Square / Peter Böhm ArchitektenSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Queenstown, New Zealand CopyAbout this officeDorrington Atcheson ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesQueenstownOn FacebookNew ZealandPublished on May 26, 2020Cite: “St Marks Lane House / Dorrington Atcheson Architects” 26 May 2020.
