“Los Angeles-based Marmol Radziner have designed the Wanaka Residence. The single-storey family home was completed in 2008 and is located in the Wanaka Valley, New Zealand.
According to the architects: “With distant views of alpine peaks, the hillside site overlooks rolling farmland. The site faces north, directly into the blazing sun of the southern hemisphere. Strict agency requirements limited both the size and form of the contemporary New Zealand home in relation to the slope. The climate is one of extremes with very hot summers and freezing cold winters.”
