Butel Park, to the West of Arrowtown is a residential development intended to comprise houses that reflect the historic Arrowtown Character, identified as being a simple architectural vernacular sitting on large sections completed with extensive gardens and deciduous trees. Dwellings are subject to restrictive design controls in regard to form and materials.
Set back on its site against a reserve, the Wright house gives the majority of the site over to a leveled lawn, and garden. The simple cottage form and reduced pallette of colour and material play the house as recessive to the garden, and surrounding mountains.
The house was published in HOME New Zealand in 2014 and featured in the NZ House & Garden 2015 Queenstown Home Tour.
