Developers and homeowners are always looking for fresh ways to seamlessly blend new buildings with the surrounding landscape.
Material COLORSTEEL® ENDURA®
Profile Alpine Tray
Jenny and Murray Butler worked with Mark Gray, of Queenstown firm Wyatt & Gray Architects to build their four bedroom, 270 square metre holiday home at Jack’s Point. It’s a 1200-hectare settlement on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, just 20 minutes outside of Queenstown.
“As a premium residential neighbourhood, Jack’s Point has tightly defined guidelines in respect of material build and general aesthetics,” says Mark Gray.
“The developers, understandably, have been keen that any new builds on the estate are generally sympathetic to the immediate environment. It’s very much a case of harmoniously blending in, rather than actively standing out.”
To achieve this aesthetic, both the architect and homeowners agreed on an Alpine Tray profile, with COLORSTEEL® ENDURA® in the popular Ironsand colour.
Murray Butler feels totally at home under his new roof.
“We love the steepness of the gabled roofs and the COLORSTEEL® Alpine Tray profile with the gun metal grey of Ironsand makes for a very clean, unfussy finish.”
“We’ve lived in Queenstown before, gone away and been drawn back, so we wanted to create something that would endure. The views are out of this world and the way Mark and his team have oriented the home on the site allows for lots of natural light through the day.”
Durability and sustainable good looks were guiding factors for both the owners and the architect when choosing the roof. The success of the project is clear — COLORSTEEL® roofing, and Ironsand have become Jack’s Point favourites.
For Mark Gray, choosing COLORSTEEL® meant the family got more than just great design.
“The simple, uncomplicated lines of COLORSTEEL® are a perfect complement to our rural landscapes. The fact that the product is made here in New Zealand with specific regard to the unique complexities of our climatic conditions is all the better.”
Now the Butlers are the proud owners of a beautiful home that is very much part of the surrounding environment.
