Architectural duo, Sian Taylor and Mark Read, have designed a low-energy, sustainable family home in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, between Coronet Peak, Arthurs Point and Lake Hayes in the Wakatipu Basin.
Imagine having a bedroom with a 360-degree view of snowy mountains and crystal clear lakes, where you feel like you’re living within a set of Lord of the Rings. Situated in Speargrass Flat, just outside of Arrowtown, overlooking a landscape that includes The Remarkables mountain ranges and the vineyards of Gibbston Valley, Oliver’s Ridge House was designed to be energy-efficient, sustainable and healthy in response to its extreme climate.
