Mt Pisa - Team Green Architects | ArchiPro

This house is located in the Mt Pisa ranges of Central Otago. The dramatic site required a response which created shelter for extreme weather conditions. With everything from long hot summer days, through to below freezing winters, with potential for severe winds thorough the year, the design and construction needed to ensure the owners were always warm and comfortable.

The response was a simple rectangular plan with a form which is “saluting the morning sun”. Windows are set back in the elevation to create appropriate shade and shelter. The simple floor plan, creates an energy efficient space. The living area high has a sloping high ceiling leading up to the two story part of the house. The master bedroom suite, and office occupy the first floor, with living room, kitchen, laundry and spare living space/bedroom on the ground floor below.
