Cardrona River House - Mason & Wales Architects | ArchiPro

Cardrona River House

The 400m2 house is positioned on a linear terrace overlooking the working farmland of River Run Station – and the Cardrona River – on the outskirts of Wanaka. The simple post and beam structure navigates a hillside descent on three levels while an arrangement of stone, timber and glass elements responds to the climate, culture and lifestyle of Central Otago.

“The clients, a young American family living overseas, had a good understanding of what they wanted to achieve and how they would use the property. They wanted a house that serves as a getaway and retreat from their day-to-day urban life in Hong Kong. The client showed a true appreciation of the landscape, climate, culture and lifestyle of this part of New Zealand.” Hamish Muir, Director, Mason & Wales Architects.

“In the alpine planes of the Otago region on New Zealand’s South Island, Mason and Wales Architects creates an honest and grounded holiday house for an expat American family living overseas. The simple post and beam structure navigates a hillside descent on three levels while an arrangement of stone, timber and glass elements responds to the climate, culture and lifestyle of this part of the world."
