Client: –

Beneath Queenstowns’ northwestern hills of dark pine clad forest, a new 5 star plus hotel rises to catch shafts of sunlight from behind and to face the ‘Remarkables’.

This ‘French chateau’ lodge, scaled tall and elegant to fulfil its grand mountain backdrop, offers the best of comfort for its visitors in an ever-changing climate. This is a powerful ‘icon’ building in a dynamic setting. The porte-cochere entry leads to a 2 storey base podium with ground level reception, residences lifts, restaurants and the first floor level convention facilities. Lifts to below provide connection to basement car parking and servicing.

Two towers of residences rise to reduce the overall buildings bulk and increase their slender aspect to reflect the tree scape behind.
