On the hills above the ethereal Raupo Bay, a site with grandstand views takes advantage of the sparsely populated peninsula. The owners of the site partnered with Wilson & Hill to deliver a private and predominantly self-sufficient retreat that tucks into the landscape.
“The feeling We get when We arrive at the site is that you could be anywhere – you could be miles away from Christchurch,” says Wilson & Hill’s David Hill. “You've got this fantastic outlook, great surroundings, and it's just a very, very special place.”
The client required several bedrooms and bathrooms plus separate guest accommodation, and extensive garaging, so it was decided that to keep it within the restrictive parameters, that an arrangement of gabled forms would step gently down the slope, interconnected by a central entry hallway.
