Hotel Wanaka

 

Uniquely positioned above the marina, this hotel in Wanaka is set to replace the existing aging backpacker lodge.

The hotel is composed of 3 fragmented and interlinked forms that step up the hillside above Lakeside Road.  Two three storey blocks clad in form-cast concrete, cedar and glass contain 36 rooms, linked by a welcoming social entrance and guest bar.  Landscaping is by Annabel Riley of Plot, Wanaka.
