Ruby Ridge

A study in strong lines and soft curves, this home is located on an elevated site overlooking Wanaka and boasts a simple mono-pitched roof with curved-edge cedar-clad walls. Two types of cedar cladding have been used with a dark stain accentuating the lines of the window and roof, while the boardform concrete contrasts with the timber.

The two pavillions are connected by a gallery to guide between the north and southern pavilions.Inside a simple aesthetic is created by continuing the exterior materials throughout. The living space is configured around a courtyard with the body of the house acting as a visual barrier to the streetfront. The lake and peaks are visible allowing that connection with the landscape around. Thermally broken windows provide a natural form of temperature control allowing the home to cool in summer and be warm in winter.
