A recently subdivided farm on Lower Shotover Road has provided a number of flat north-facing sites with large building platforms. Each site enjoys all day sun and panoramic views, from Coronet Peak in the north, to The Remarkables in the south.
The 415 square metre home begins with a frameless glass entry creating a flow into the hub of the home. The two light and welcoming living areas feature exposed trusses and large back to back fireplaces, a gravitational heart of the house.
The footprint encompasses four bedrooms, each with their own ensuite bathroom and walk in wardrobe across its footprint. Epicurean occupants also enjoy the design’s large scullery and bespoke wine cellar. The exterior of the home is clad in pre-cast concrete panels, cedar weatherboard and slate tile roofing.
The cost per square metre to build this home was $4,500 at the time of construction. Dravitzki Brown Architecture believe architecturally designed homes should be within everyone's reach - get in contact with them today to discuss your project.

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.
