This magnificent contemporary lake house is designed by Mason and Wales Architects, located in Queenstown, New Zealand. Sited to be in harmony with its surroundings, this dwelling features living spaces that frame stunning views of Lake Wakatipu while private, inward-focused spaces are set back into the site. Although this impressive New Zealand home offers 11,560 square feet of living space, the architects have successfully manipulated scale and mass to disguise the size.

Highlights to this home include four lodge scale bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, an executive office, five-car garage, games room, industrial styled bar, cinema, and wellness area. This fabulous dwelling has been designed and built with extraordinary attention to detail at a scale that is simply breathtaking. Integrated into the design is the finest materials and accessories sourced from around the world.

This dwelling is a contemporary interpretation of traditional mountain lodge style. Designed and constructed to withstand its environment, if needed, this home can go ‘off-grid’. The reinforced concrete and steel structure are founded on bedrock and clad externally in the highest quality materials. This includes local schist stonework quarried from the property, zinc metal tray roofing, expressed hardwood timber posts and beams with triple glazing in high-performance anodized frames.

What We Love: This home has been carefully positioned to maximize the potential of the site, concealing itself into the protected landscape of the Wyuna Preserve. This presents a unique opportunity for a luxury habitat in a protected environment. Large windows not only helps to illuminate interior livings spaces with natural light but frames the views of the beautiful lake and beyond to the rugged mountains.
