Mt Koinga House

Mt Koinga House

Space to entertain

Set on a dramatic vineyard site in Central Otago, this new 375m2 home provides a spectacular outlook across Mt Koinga.

Traditional forms are combined with contemporary detailing. Two stone-clad wings form the main vertical elements of the house, and are connected by a copper-clad, central body that houses the master suite, two guest bedrooms and a bathroom. Hallways between the structures are more intimate with low ceilings providing a pleasing contrast to the openness of the high raked ceilings within the living spaces and bedrooms. A basement cellar is located below the entrance gallery.

 

An honest and robust palette of natural materials are used throughout. Copper cladding and traditional Central Otago Schist flow from exterior to interior articulating form and providing cohesive simplicity. Re-purposed railway sleepers have been lovingly restored,  showcasing the main post and beam structure of the roof line within the interior.
