Located within the prestigious Wyuna Preserve, this project included the management and construction of an extraordinary home encompassing a total of 1,150m2. 

The exterior of this home is characterised by local Wyuna Station schist cladding, cedar weatherboards, off-the-form concrete, Purple Heart hardwood detailing, cedar shutters, recessed glazing, and four large stone chimneys. It is further complimented by the extensive hard and soft landscaping, including native planting and widespread schist landscaping walls.

Within the lower level of this home, key features include a large garage with glass garage door, a wine cellar, a bar and billiards area, an eight-person cinema, a spa and steam room with showers and changing area. A feature ‘floating’ bluestone staircase links the lower level of 450m2 with the upper level of 650m2.   

The upper level contains the main entrance lobby, large study, feature gas fireplace with library-style book shelving, gym, Boffi designer kitchen and a ‘great room’ with a vaulted ceiling lined in oak and a large two-metre open wood fireplace. The large master bedroom on this level includes floor-to-ceiling windows, generous ensuite and walk-in-wardrobes. The remaining three bedrooms each contain generous ensuites and dressing rooms. 

This property also features state-of-the-art controls systems, fittings and fixtures – many of which were sourced from Europe and the USA. This required detailed programme management to ensure lead times aligned with the construction programme.    

External areas of the building include paved areas to all sides of the house, as well as a louvred roof over the patio adjacent to the dining room. A BBQ area, spa pool and large outdoor wood fireplace are other key components of the outdoor living provided at this dwelling. A standalone plant room of 50m2 was also included in the development, and this contains a 60Kw log boiler with diesel backup and a gas bottle bank. 

A key challenge of this build was that 500m2 of the basement construction was into solid rock, requiring significant bulk earthworks and rock breaking as well as rock anchoring in several areas.

Welcome to Triple Star.  We are an award-winning, full-service project management and construction company located in Central Otago, New Zealand.  We have a proven reputation in the management and building of high-end projects. 

Our team has considerable experience in all types of residential and commercial construction and we pride ourselves on our relationships and our ability to achieve the highest standards.  We look forward to talking to you about your project.


In 2008, Peter Campbell formed Triple Star Management Ltd (Triple Star) in response to the growing demand from international homeowners and investors for a reliable and experienced single point of contact for all their construction needs in Queenstown and the surrounding Central Otago area.

In 2010, Peter Campbell and Karl Poole re-established Edge Construction 2010 Ltd, with the objective of bringing to the market a company that could provide quality construction with effective project management.

The two companies merged in 2015, to become a comprehensive and professional main contractor with integrated services over the entire project cycle. Triple Star is the amalgamation of the two companies and it is now owned by a group of employees who manage key areas of the business, with Peter Campbell and Karl Poole as Company Directors.

Peter is both a qualified builder and project manager, with a university degree in Project Management and Valuation. He has successfully delivered a significant range of commercial projects, including hotels, hospitals, apartments, office buildings, and many retail and high-end residential projects in both the North Island and Queenstown.

Karl completed his apprenticeship with Edge Construction whilst building the prestigious Blanket Bay Lodge near Glenorchy. His attention to detail and building skills were recognised and he progressed quickly to a foreman role. Since this time, over the past twenty years, he has managed the delivery of multiple high-end residential and commercial projects around Queenstown. These include Lot 22 at Wyuna Preserve, 'The Peak' on Queenstown Hill and, most recently, the villa development at Blanket Bay Lodge.
