Wanaka is a project by Daniel Marshall Architect (DMA) involving Nick as Project Architect. Additional details at marshall-architect.co.nz.
This family holiday pad sits on a small sloping section overlooking Lake Wanaka towards the craggy ranges.
DMA’s conceptual resolve was a highly sculptural dwelling formed in-part in response to tight planning controls. Living spaces are elevated to an upper level to enhance views over the roofs of surrounding single level suburban dwellings. The project is a ‘stand out’ within its neighbourhood as an efficient and well crafted home achieved on a comparatively modest budget.
