The Peninsula house occupies a tricky site on a rocky outcrop overlooking Lake Wakatipu.

To reflect the owners’ style of living, the home has been designed simply and efficiently, without fuss or excess. The clean, folded geometry of the roofline informs a hierarchy of spaces within. The roof extends to create porch enclosures that frame various views to the lake and mountains, and provide a variety of outdoor spaces for differing climatic conditions.

This lakeside retreat is a modest, compact home that has a relaxed connection to its environment.
