The residence overlooks the rolling farmland of MT barker, New Zealand. Oriented with an elongated elevation towards the north, the dwelling is protected by a deep roof eave to block the strong sun of the southern hemisphere while framing the distant alpine peaks. Approaching the homestead, the structure is encompassed by and recedes into the barren hillside beyond.
The linear configuration and shallow footprint allows sweeping mountain views from all of the interior rooms which are framed by the roofline and cedar deck.
