The Lindis Lodge, Otago

From the undulating and free-flowing curved roof that mimics the surrounding landscape to the full glass façade – the project offers breath-taking views within the confines of a luxury lodge. Situated over the Lindis Pass and half-way towards the West Coast on the eastern side of the Southern Alps, this building was designed as a retreat for the owners and visitors alike. 

Target Market
Patrons who enjoy the seclusion and luxury accommodation. This boutique five-bedroom lodge features a stylish bar and an upscale restaurant.

Challenges we Faced
While the isolation of the location is perfect upon completion, it presented several challenges for our Viridian Cromwell Team during the build phase of the project. As this was a winter build where the average temperature is -5° site-measures, glazing and driving was difficult with unwelcomed sleet and snow – even with the use of 4WD vehicles.

Products Used

  • Viridian’s double-glazed units containing Low-E Lightbridge glass – the project offers breath-taking views within the confines of a luxury lodge.
  • Bespoke mirrors in each of the guest rooms.
  • Toughened glass showers in each of the guest rooms

Results
Using the clearest form of double glazing available in New Zealand, LightBirdge Clear Low-E double glazing compliments the project perfectly. The result provides clear views throughout the Lindis Valley, connecting the visitors with their surroundings. Due to the Low-E coating, the occupants are also kept warm when the temperature is below zero.
