Understanding and working with the owners was critical

A significant amount of time was spent understanding how the owners wanted to use their home and what they wanted to achieve for their family through the construction process. The end result being a beautiful house that provides a warm, low energy environment for the family.

The Remarkables and Coronet Peak provided a stunning backdrop for this Queenstown property, “The Homestead”. To ensure the owners could enjoy the magnificent  views in comfort we utilised in the design process the following:-

  • The North-facing aspect
  • PVC triple glazed windows
  • LVL timber framing
  • Wool insulation
  • High R-value Intello and ICS wall and ceiling systems
  • A balanced heat transfer system using Zhender and Escea gas fire heating
  • Cedar cladding
  • Natural  local resources including schist stone
