Timms House

Located on The Preserve at Jack’s Point, Queenstown, the Timms Residence suspends out across a sloping section to maximise enjoyment of the spectacular setting.


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

Nature’s gallery is on display with floor to ceiling glazing, enabling panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu, while a strong schist stone chimney and ground level walls anchor the structure.


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.

- Craig & Tracy Wilson

The upper level is constructed from exposed steel, glass and cedar. And an outdoor courtyard utilises frameless bi-folding doors, to provide shelter from the wind without impairing lake views.
