Arthurs Point Steel House

Arthurs Point Steel House is located in Arthurs Point, Queenstown, just 15 minutes’ drive from the Coronet Peak ski area. This first home for a young family needed to be high performance to suit the mountainous location, which is known for its hot summers and cold winters, but still constructed within a tight budget. The building design and form of this home is a direct result of maximising the budget, the site and the climate. To be cost effective, it needed to be as simple as possible, so a two-storeyed rectangular form was created but, to prevent it from being boring and to provide shade, a distinctive ‘apron’ of perforated metal screens are angled to allow the sun to enter the home when required or shut out when it’s not. The plan’s north-facing orientation maximises the sunlight using passive heat gain, while providing plenty of shade during the hotter months of the year.
