Rangi Nui

Located on a large flat site half way between Coronet Peak and The Remarkables in the Wakatipu Basin sits the four bedroom home appropriately named Rangi Nui, meaning ‘Great Sky’ The challenge for this site is the fact that views are in every direction. A key design decision was to be able to see both Coronet Peak and The Remarkables form the main living areas.


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 stunning feature is the exposed timber scissor trusses, creating high ceilings in the living areas which extend out to the landscape. The house is arranged around multiple outdoor courtyards, allowing sheltered areas to enjoy the outside in a variety of weather conditions.


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.

Attic trusses above the garage and secondary bedrooms are a clever way to maximise cost effective floor area. The house is clad in slate, cedar and schist stone.
