Quayle Residence

Quayle Residence is located on a steeply sloping site at the picturesque Wilson’s Bay just outside of Queenstown. The design challenge was to take advantage of the incredible lake views to the south whilst allowing the sun to penetrate as many rooms as possible. The garage and guest bedrooms form the foundation to the upper level which houses the living areas and master bedroom.


We relied on Katrina and Alister to supervise the build in our absence and had no difficulty in liaising with them via the internet about various decisions. The builder was very impressed with Alister and Katrina and the quality and detail of their plans which he found very easy to work with.

A mono pitch roof with high glass opens the house to the sun, and floor to ceiling double glazing makes the most of the lake views. The basement level features heavy schist stone cladding while the upper level is more light weight and uses low maintenance alucobond cladding.


Designs that incorporate our clients’ ideas, yet exceed expectations.

The deck wraps around the house widening at the west to become an outdoor room, featuring louvered roof, outdoor fireplace and barbeque.
