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.


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.

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.


Very fortunate to meet you both a few years after I suffered an extremely stressful experience with a Wellington based architect.

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.
