This Mountain Retreat is a Subtle Insertion in the Alpine Landscape

This Mountain Retreat is a Subtle Insertion in the Alpine Landscape (1)

Mountain Retreat was designed by New Zealand studio Fearon Hay Architects.

Description by Fearon Hay Architects: This alpine retreat is a small structure set within a high country station, adjacent Lake Wakatipu, Central Otago. The colours and textures of the cladding integrate the building into the gravel tracks, exposed rock faces and scree slopes of the alpine environment. The architecture seeks to be a subtle insertion in the alpine landscape. The internal environment is both muscular and refined, referencing the toughness of the environment while providing comfort required for a retreat in the mountains.

Location: Lake Wakatipu, Central Otago, New Zealand
