The concept for this home activated a barren site as a model of the alpine dream. An artificial infinity edged reflection lake with sculptural hillocks behind, forms a foreground to the surrounding Wakatipu landscape. By doing this, Coronet Peak, which forms the primary view is brought as a framed double reflection into a dialogue with the property. The whole composition forms a stage for living a full and dramatic life.
