Wales House

The Wales Residence features a series of pavilions with floating roofs, which are organised around a large central courtyard. The pavilions are linked by a glazed gallery, separating the living and bedroom areas of the home. The elevated site has stunning views up to Coronet Peak and down the Shotover River.


Exceptional buildings are the result of an effective collaboration between The Builder, The Client, and The Architect, 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.


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.
