Secluded Retreat Integrating Mountain-Inspired Colors And Textures


Designed to adapt to an alpine environment defined by scree slopes, imposing rocks and gravel tracks, this modern Mountain Retreat seems to mirror the awe-inspiring surrounding landscape in a collection of carefully constructed interiors. A brainchild of New Zealand-based Fearon Hay Architects, the small mountain home near Lake Wakatipu, Central Otago, provides a secluded escape translated into modern modern architectural language by adapting it to surroundings. Large sliding walls transform the living zone into a first-row invitation to lie in the comfort of a contemporary structure and feel blessed to be outside at the same time. Colors and textures create a praise-worthy composition, described by the architects as a studied balance between natural and man-made: “The internal environment is both muscular and refined, referencing the toughness of the environment while providing comfort required for a retreat in the mountains.”
