In partnership with Los Angeles architectural practice, Marmol Radziner and Associates, HMOA designed a Californian modernist-style home for a Central Otago setting.

The archetypal modernist pavilion was adapted to suit local planning rules, the extreme weather conditions, and to take advantage of the spectacular views from this Wanaka property. The design responds to this local context with a careful choice of materials that blends the house with the surrounding landscape, while retaining its sense of character.

"An international collaboration has delivered a successful interpretation of a ‘modernist Californian pavilion’ refined to suit a Central Otago context and climate," NZIA Awards Jury, 2011.
