Glencoe, Crown Terrace

With Soho station behind and Wakatipu basin below, this rammed earth home on the Crown Terrace rests atop a rock-clad terrace to sit above the tussock-lands and take in the expansive landscape panorama.  The home wraps a rear courtyard to provide shelter and shade from sun and wind, and immediate views to the rugged Crown Range.

Internally the home is staggered over several slab levels, with the rock terrace forming a consistent datum for the external earth walls, panoramic windows and narrow slot windows.
