Lakes Edge House

The views, sun and location of this waterfront section are unsurpassed in Queenstown although the narrow sloping site was not without its design challenges. The result is a double level house, with a large outdoor living room, with built in seating, gas fireplace and outdoor kitchen, created by the overhanging level above.


Three years on after moving in, we still love living in the spaces created and would happily recommend them to anyone looking for a home with a difference.

Opening cedar shutters allows users to manipulate the facade to create openness or privacy depending on requirements. The home features a batten cedar ceiling which is continuous from inside to out. The frameless glass on the northern end of the living room further helps to blur the lines between the interior and exterior.


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.

- Katrina Dravitzki & Alister Brown

Dravitzki Brown’s design oeuvre reveals a strong commitment to ensuring the conceptual theme flows seamlessly throughout the build. Their structures echo a consistent design language, both in the overall form and the way materials are used, which resonate from interior to exterior. Extensive knowledge in complex detailing bring designs to life, aided by photo-realistic renderings which enables clients to view, and understand the vision, well before construction begins.
