Lakes Edge House

The views, sun and location of this waterfront section are unsurpassed in Queenstown although the narrow sloping site was not without its design challenges. The result is a double level house, with a large outdoor living room, with built in seating, gas fireplace and outdoor kitchen, created by the overhanging level above.


From initial point of contact, Katrina and Alister were interested to hear and learn what was important to us when designing our home. They quickly identified the style of house we were after, and how it could work with our family and lifestyle.

Opening cedar shutters allows users to manipulate the facade to create openness or privacy depending on requirements. The home features a batten cedar ceiling which is continuous from inside to out. The frameless glass on the northern end of the living room further helps to blur the lines between the interior and exterior.


Three years on after moving in, we still love living in the spaces created and would happily recommend them to anyone looking for a home with a difference.
