Hawea House

On the shores of Lake Hawea, nestled in the mountains and the Central Otago landscape, contrasting materials suit this modest family home. Patina Grey Prefa FX12 aluminium shingles provide a robust finish for the harsh mountain climate. Rust-coloured vertical variable tray Corten panels and lines provide contrasting design and a rural-styled finish. Colour and materials bring this home to life.

Builder: Down to Earth Builders
Architect: Salmond Architecture
Materials: A Combination of Corten and Prefa FX12 Aluminium shingles
