Roy’s Peninsular House – Roy’s Peninsular, Wanaka

This property is located amongst the tussock-covered hills of Roy’s Peninsula on the shores of Lake Wanaka.

Our clients split their time between their homes in Auckland and Wanaka so they entrusted Greenwood Associates to create a naturalistic setting for the 2010 House of the Year designed by Stevens Lawson Architects, so they could completely escape the city life in their South Island home. A spectacular hilltop site and outlook over Lake Wanaka required a deft hand to leave a minimal trace of human impact on the pristine landscape. The local council imposed visual impact restrictions on the size and location of the building platform and the materials used. The only plants used were Poa cita (silver tussock) and Leptospermum scoparium (manuka) to subtly blend the property into the existing vegetation and retain a minimalist landscape.
