Roche Street House By Condon Scott Architects 7

The brief from the owners of Roche Street House is to create a low maintenance holiday retreat. This beautiful house is located in the heart of Wanaka, New Zealand, and designed by Condon Scott Architects. It is a two-storey home designed with an exterior palette combination of timber cladding and light-colored stone.

The result of this project is a low maintenance holiday retreat with two floors. This house takes a lot of advantages from the stunning lake views to the north. It is designed around a series of courtyards, offering multiple outdoor living options for the occupants depending on the time of day.

This house has a dramatic cantilever on its upper-level volume, providing shade and shelter to the courtyard below. The use of mid-century style breezeblocks is reminiscent of Wanaka cribs of old. The architect uses an exterior palette combination of charred “Shou Sugi Ban” Accoya timber cladding, contrasted with light-colored Oamaru stone. This combination can create an understanding and refined street presence.
