Modern Arrowtown Cottage

Modern Arrowtown Cottage

Set on an elevated hill in Arrowtown, this modern home pays homage to the modest early cottages that are synonymous with the area – a simple gabled form with chimney with lean-to roof. Here, it is interpreted in a slate-like cladding with stained cedar and glass. The chimney is exposed to the side. The layout has been specifically designed to work as a generous holiday home, able to accommodate two families. The split level deign has two bedrooms on the upper levels with bathrooms, and a huge bunk room and large bathroom in the basement with built in beds sufficient to accommodate a large hoard, plus additional room to function as a games area. The garage is discrete, to keep with the simple cottage feel. Whilst being obviously modern, the house is contained in a fairly modest footprint, yet maximises the outdoor opportunities via a series of courtyards and open spaces. As always with Koia-designed projects, this home has been conceived and built with a ‘whole of lie’ design in mind, whereby it will endure for many decades.
