The Lynds Residence; a comfortable, family home nestled in stunning Queenstown located beside a river terrace. The surrounding mountainous views, exploited through the spaces of each window and door helps bring focus to an impressive mountain peak.

The home has been designed to facilitate positive indoor and outdoor activities, being connected to the garden and natural seasonal cycles was imperative. This is enabled by the integration of a pergola structure, located at the front of the home. This structure will support the growth of deciduous climbing plants, providing lush green shading in the summer, with filtered sunshine to ground level spaces in the winter. Stepped down lounge opens out through tall bi-folding doors onto a (yet to be paved) courtyard area.

Adding depth to the space while ensuring all areas are utilized productively, the cosy lounge setting includes a study/office nook under the stair. The laundry and storage cupboards on the ground floor have been designed to be seamlessly closed off, using the hallway circulation to access these facilities reduces excessive circulation.

The two-storied design allows for heating efficiency as well as good natural air circulation, and comfort. The inclusion of NZ made & sourced woolen carpet in the upstairs bedrooms adds softness and underfoot warmth, while the CLT floors on the ground level allow for an easy to clean surface. The exposed Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels form the majority of the interior surfaces, regulating the air humidity. The CLT structure provides a sound structural shell with the potential for future change where many of the interior partitions walls can be moved without affecting the homes structural integrity.
