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.


Dravitzki Brown have been a great architectural studio to work with. I would have no hesitation to engage them for any future building projects.

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 thrilled at how our vision was transformed into the home we wanted – it’s beautiful, meets all of our requirements, and is a joy to live in.

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.
