The design philosophy behind this beautiful new home has been aptly described by the architect Richard Naish of RTA Studio as: “A unique design intended to replicate a series of boat sheds elevated above Bobs Cove. Outdoor living areas with open cladding produce a lantern effect at night. The sweeping topography with native planting blends the property into the surrounding landscape”.

Each of the five pitch-roofed pavilions open out towards Lake Wakatipu and accommodate the five distinct functions of this house: living, master suite, family sleeping, guest sleeping and a central outdoor living and boat shed. The pavilions are linked together by an external breezeway and feature a suspended timber deck that extends down the lake.
