Copper House, Queenstown

A large modern luxury home with sculptural elements within the house and garden including a green wall in the outdoor living area and several twisted schist stone walls set in the garden.

Although a challengingly steep site, the nature of the topography was embraced through the design to provide the inspriation for the scultpural walls as feature points within the garden.

This garden was recently featured in the Summer 2014 issue of Landscape Architecture New Zealand, click here to review the article.

Working closely on the design with Crosson Clarke Carnachan Chin Architects with the brief to successfully compliment the strong architectural design with bold landscaping, and to continue the theme of working on different planes throughout the garden, with focal points from each window.  The outdoor entertaining area at the rear of the house required large retaining walls to maximise the area.  These were softened with the green wall, and integrated with the larger boulders around the insitu spa.
