Designed by Melanie Craig Design
From the interior designer:
Nestled In the rugged Central Otago hills, this holiday house was built to high passive standard through partnership with eHaus.
From the exterior, the house appears as a strong bunker-like structure amongst the jagged schist rock, nearly unseen from the below road.
From the moment you open the front door, you are entering into an inviting space with the ‘look twice’ design approach – with details everywhere you look.
The owners wanted to create a home which fits cohesively with its surrounding landscape and does justice to location, views, and history.
The home had to create a foundation for wonderful experiences for family and friends to stay, feel relaxed, peaceful and be comfortable and warm as well as have character and vibrancy on the coldest of winters day.
This home was architecturally designed and constructed through eHaus with a focus on sustainability, performance, and technology, so it was important to be guided by their eco values and use of sustainable products where possible throughout the interior.
