Registered Master Builders 2021 House of the Year – Southern Region

Te Toka

Not only is this home breathtakingly beautiful, it is also an exemplar of innovative solutions in sustainability and craftsmanship, with its sheer size demanding uncommon expertise. Every feature is at scale, perfectly proportioned despite the large footprint.

Dalefield Home in the Meadow

Schist stonework along the chimney provides a textured accent to the timber cladding, anchoring the aesthetics in the local vernacular, echoing the image of a log cabin on a far more elegant scale.

Dalefield Homestead

Inspired by the homesteads of old, this picturesque Queenstown home is not only architecturally respectful of its past, but behind the facade is an energy-efficient home boasting Central Otago’s highest air-tightness rating.

Quail Rise Contemporary Bach

Dalefield Entertainers Delight
