Project Timber: Mt Cook Homestead | July 2021

With the picturesque backdrop of Aoraki, this unique single-level homestead has put natural and recycled materials at the forefront of the design while ensuring to keep the beautiful historical elements intact by reusing materials from the original homestead of Mt Cook Station. The collaboration between RW Design and Lone Pine Building was massively successful in materialising the owners dreams and aspirations for this historically inspired homestead.

The owners of this luxurious single-level homestead wanted to tell a story of longevity, by marrying contemporary and historical styles and taking inspiration from the rugged and rustic surroundings. A major focus was using, and reusing natural and recycled materials of which some the station had on offer along with the addition of high-end elements that complimented and modernised this build. On the exterior this spectacular home has utilised JSC Western Red Cedar cladding for the board and batten look, which was used exquisitely alongside Architecturally chosen classic stone elements. This distinguished homestead pays tribute to its beautiful alpine surroundings and the historically rich area of Aotearoa.

The 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom home was thoughtfully and cleverly design. The use of a central custom Cedar double doors forms a self-contained two bedroom unit. With reclaimed ceiling beams that pulls ones eyes through the dining room to a featured fireplace of a lounge flooded with warm natural sunlight. This is finished off with an enormous window showcasing a panoramic view of the landscape. Timber elements can be found all through the interior which brings the whole home together while drawing on the rustic nature of its surrounds. A truly special and self-sustainable home.
