Soroka House

Soroka Residence sits on a large rural section in the much sort after ‘golden triangle’ in the Wakatipu Basin, the design itself is a large and dramatic symmetrical design featuring poured in-situ concrete over super-insulated poly block walls. North and south-facing pavilions enable the occupants to simultaneously capture both Coronet Peak and The Remarkables mountain ranges.


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.

Ashen timber cladding was chosen for its warmth to contrast the use of concrete, steel, and glass. The ashen timber was also used alongside American Oak joinery extensively on the interior which has created an interior that is not only beautiful but also durable. The aesthetic and materials of the interior of this home are a reflection of the exterior and whilst it functions as one large home, it also has the flexibility to be split into a home with separate guest house simply by locking large internal pivot doors.


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.
