Queenstown property a stand-out in sustainable house design

DATE 20th Aug 2018



At the forefront of residential design, this property combines ultra-comfort and local alpine architecture with high-tech sustainability concepts.  Team Green Architects set out to deliver a home where residents enjoyed total comfort and beauty, as well as reduced power bills and a smaller carbon footprint. This striking Domain Road home (listed exclusively with New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty) is as beautiful as it is energy efficient.

The split level home comprises of three timber-clad pavilions set around a central courtyard and its four bedrooms, three bathrooms and various living spaces, media room and office are spread over 368 sq m, set on just over three acres of land. The house was recognised as  New Zealand’s most air tight home due to triple glazing, increased insulation and complex moisture management systems. 

The beauty of the design is evident in the clean lines and contemporary aesthetic that creates the perfect canvas to display artworks and furnishings. References to the structure’s alpine setting can be seen in the exposed trusses, stacked stone and landscaping, meaning it blends sympathetically into the environment. Stunning views of rural Queenstown, Coronet Peak and the Remarkables mountain range are taken in from around the home.
