The client's request was for a house tailored to their lifestyle, allowing them to close off specific sections when not in use. This led to the creation of a house divided into three wings: one for the garage and master bedroom, another for the kitchen and living spaces, and a third for guest living and bedrooms.
This approach served a vital purpose in aligning with the design brief by enabling the client to utilize a smaller portion of the house without expending energy to heat the guest wing when unnecessary. Additionally, it ensured that both the client and guests had their own private spaces within the house.
The property features a generously sized covered outdoor entertaining area accessible from both the primary living space and the guest living area. Positioned to the west, this outdoor space captures the afternoon and evening sun throughout the year, making it an ideal spot for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Furthermore, the gable roof design mimcs the surrounding Central Otago hills and allowed for ample attic storage to be integrated into the roof structure.
