What We Do

Winemaker's House

‘House for a Winemaker’ was designed by local Queenstown architect, Stacey Farrell.

Specifically designed to make the most of this north facing sloping site, the house maximises its footprint through the provision of carports and storage under the main 130m2 building platform.

The kitchen, indoor and outdoor living areas are all north-facing, which makes the most of the small, elevated site whilst taking in spectacular views looking directly out at both the stunning surrounding hills and over the small historic township of Arrowtown.

The site itself presented the team with a number of challenges regarding access for equipment and materials, whilst an early dump of snow applied additional pressure to the timeline. The team also worked closely with the architect to resolve a number of fine, detailing issues in order to deliver a great result for the client.

Anzac Avenue Apartment Conversion

The project involved the conversion, upgrade and refurbishment of an existing c.1920 six storey building into 30 quality apartments.
