  1. Fantastic pics, lovely use of wood and glass!

    I love the old out house pic!

      Paul, one thing the Queenstown Lakes District Plan ‘invites’ is the use of a limited building material and colour palette, for landscape reasons (to put it informally) – these and other photos taken show how this isn’t an inhibitor for accomplished contemporary architectural design by registered architects.

      Obviously, a range of budgets – the first two photos are of ‘Te Kaitaka’ (Lake Wanaka district – remote). Design by Stevens Lawson Architects. Some of the houses we visited for judging were in the +$3 million range.

    Elizabeth, how could you pick a residence in the 21st century with an outside toilet? Shame on you!

    QT Haus, Queenstown (bottom two photos) by architects Sue Hillery and Richard Priest features on the cover of Urbis (Issue 58), with more page 112. Designed for a Sydney-based family.
