A Modern Mountain Range House, New Zealand

Irving Smith Jack Architects a Nelson-based design studio has completed the Mountain Range House. Completed in 2009, this two-storey luxury home is located in Brightwater, New Zealand.

According to the architects: “Situated beneath the Richmond Ranges south of Nelson, this contemporary New Zealand home provides new living environments for the more important members of a flamboyant inter-generational family. Whereas the family’s existing farmhouse holds tight contained spaces within perimeter walls, the new pavilion provides open and elongated transitional spaces to connect living with landscape.

“Like the mountain range above them, the contemporary New Zealand home folds and concertinas in silhouette to allow a single large space to be articulated through volume rather than between walls. The timber ceiling lifts and shapes in parallel against the timber floor, flooding the space between with warmth and an ever changing light, whilst defining connected sitting, dining and kitchen areas within a single communal space for all the family to converge and spread out within.”
