What We Do

Wanaka House

This residential project comprised the construction of a 225m2 split-level home on the hills surrounding breathtaking Lake Wanaka.

The structure was created using block retaining walls to form the basement area, together with a combination of insulated slabs on grade, suspended concrete slabs and structural steel with timber framed walls. 

The roof structure is a mixture of pitched and truss roof construction so as to provide the height of ceiling necessary to maximise the views and natural light in this beautiful lakeside location.

The facade incorporates Linea weather boards, Sumner Stone veneer, triple-glazed window suites and Alpine Tray roofing, complete with high levels of thermal insulation to all areas ensuring year-round comfort.

The modern interior finishes included feature timber floors, built-in joinery elements and ceramic tiled bathrooms.
