McChlery House

The McChlery House sits on an incredible lake front site which is adjacent to the Hilton Hotel in Queenstown. The house steps down the sloping site, split into three levels to maximise north facing views.


Alister and Katrina were extremely easy to work with and quickly picked up on what we needed and the resulting house exceeded our expectations. Their professional partnership allowed us access to both Alister’s design expertise and Katrina’s floor plan and interior design skills. Our family and friends have all been blown away by the beauty of the house and we are very proud of it.

Large sliding doors allow for a seamless transition from the open plan kitchen, dining and living area to the outdoor terrace entertainment zone where an open fire awaits.


We are thoroughly enjoying living in our house and the steady stream of drive-by photographers keeps us amused most weekends.

The house is constructed mainly from in-situ concrete walls with dark cedar cladding and movable screens. These enable the occupants to alter the façade, controlling the sunlight and privacy as needed.
