Mountain Retreat by Fearon Hay Architects
By Magaly • Apr 27, 2013
Mountain Retreat is a stunning home located in Closeburn Station, Queenstown, New Zealand, and was designed by Fearon Hay Architects.
The home mixes rustic elements -stone and wood- with more modern ones -glass and concrete- to create a spectacular effect.
Mountain Retreat by Fearon Hay Architects:
“Mountain 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.”
