Macpherson St, Wanaka

A holiday home overlooking the lake in Wanaka.

This was our first project using the principles of the Passive House Standard and implemented airtightness and triple glazed windows. The project was very successful with a comfortable home achieved year-round.

The project was centred around large gatherings at the family holiday home, with an emphasis on dining and the swimming pool.
