Designed for Queenstown's latest waterfront subdivision - Lakes Edge. This modern home constructed of concrete and glass, features 4 bedrooms each with their own ensuite, triple car garaging, wine cellar and a large outdoor courtyard. The home is split over three levels to suit the sloping site and maximise the lake front views. Laser cut Cor-ten steel screens maintain privacy from the walking track below.
Designs that incorporate our clients ideas, and then exceed their expectations. Alister and Katrina believe listening is the key.
“Great buildings are the result of a great team. The builder, the client and the architect all play a vital role.”
Dravitzki & Brown are a husband and wife duo committed to designing beautiful buildings with functional spaces that enhance people’s lives. They give their clients a professional service with a down to earth approach. Based in Queenstown since 2008 they understand the design challenges created by its harsh climate. Although mostly designing locally around Queenstown and Wanaka they have designed a number of projects in different parts of New Zealand, including Greytown, New Plymouth, Dunedin, Oamaru.
Their strength lies in their ability to design buildings which have a consistent design language, both in the overall form and the way materials are used. Their extensive knowledge in complex detailing brings these designs to life, whilst their photo-realistic renderings ensure clients can see and understand the vision well before construction starts.
Alister and Katrina are experts in designing all aspects of complex spaces; juggling proportion, size, scale, sun, views, clients brief and budgets altogether which form the basis of all designs
Both Alister & Katrina are current architecture graduate members of the NZIA, New Zealand Institute of Architects.
