i can never get tired of reading their website !! from lakeside to alpine, urban to rural, each project created a site-speific dialogue between surrounding context and the building, which allows the newly-established seamlessly integrated with the existing.

here is another beautiful project by auckland(NZ)-based fearon hay architects, Mountain Retreat.

project description provided by the architects:

” Mountain Retreat is a small structure set within a high country station, adjacent Lake Wakatipu, Central Otago. The colours and textures of the cladding integrate the building into the gravel tracks, exposed rock faces and scree slopes of the alpine environment. The architecture seeks to be a subtle insertion in the alpine landscape. The internal environment is both muscular and refined, referencing the toughness of the environment while providing comfort required for a retreat in the mountains. ”
