Bendemeer, Queenstown

Countering the North/South axis of the Remarkables, the East/West orientation of this home at Bendemeer faces prime mountain and valley views but also acts as a wind break to form a private, sheltered outdoor living area.

The low slung home comprises two rectangular blocks each side of a central hallway, with the Northern block advancing Westwards past the Southern block.  While primarily single level, a sunken lounge takes advantage of the site slope, and the landscape design introduces locally inspired vegetation to settle the home into the hill.
