Falcon Brae

Website

Falcon Brae is a luxury lodge located in the Motueka Valley. The lodge sits on a prominent elevated site that overlooks the Motueka River and associated valley system. Canopy’s concept for the commercial landscape project was very simple, to create a series of landscape opportunities around the lodge by building a series of linear walls that terrace down from the lodge site. The walls are constructed of local natural stone and have been designed to be a landscape legacy and intergenerational symbol of the project. Reminiscent of castle buttresses, the walls will serve as a foundation for proposed landscape rooms while binding the building to the hill.

The landscape design explores a number of outdoor rooms that extend from the lodge. The intention is to draw visitors outside to experience the unique nature of the site. The surrounding landscape is a pared back design that reintroduces a palette of native species back to the site. The result is a cloak of native New Zealand plant species that wraps around the building, strongly linking landscape to environment. Built materials are natural and simple. Hardwood details, natural stone and a range of concrete and gravel complete what is a refined, powerful landscape design where simplicity is key.
