Bendeemer House

Located amidst the gently undulating slopes of Queenstown’s Bendeemer pastures with the intensity of The Remarkables, Coronet Peak and Arrowtown, contributing a stunning backdrop to the site. The brief sought for a design with a simple, uncluttered form.


Exceptional buildings are the result of an effective collaboration between The Builder, The Client, and The Designer, with each playing their own significant role in the build process.

The Bendeemer holiday home is designed to flow along the landscape, marking long, horizontal lines, with large glazed areas to capture light and capturing vast views, while adding little obtrusion to the harmony of its surroundings.


From initial point of contact, Katrina and Alister were interested to hear and learn what was important to us when designing our home. They quickly identified the style of house we were after, and how it could work with our family and lifestyle.

The 430 square metre home features pre-cast concrete and schist stone cladding with an impressive double height entry. The indoor pool opens out to a partially covered entertaining area sheltered from prevailing winds.
