Lakeview is located in Queenstown and sits between Ben Lomond and Lake Wakatipu.
The scheme connects both the mountain and the lake with a porous masterplan that allows landscape and public circulation to wind through it.
The project covers eight lots and is a mix of commercial, retail, hospitality, residential and gallery space, along with public space and amenity.
The masterplan is a hybrid of perimeter and point buildings to frame street edges but to also create a multiplicity of public lanes, courtyards, squares and streets over and between the lots.
The architectural language comprises simple forms with an intensive focus on local material such as schists and timbers to create a sense of context and appropriateness.
