Mountain Retreat by Fearon Hay

By Freshome.com - Interior Design & Architecture Magazine on Aug 09, 2012

Mountain Retreat by Fearon Hay Architects 1 Secluded Retreat Integrating Mountain Inspired Colors And Textures

Designed to adapt to an alpine environment defined by scree slopes, imposing rocks and gravel tracks, this modern Mountain Retreat seems to mirror the awe-inspiring surrounding landscape in a collection of carefully constructed interiors. A brainchild of New Zealand-based Fearon Hay Architects, the small mountain home near Lake Wakatipu, Central Otago, provides a secluded escape translated into modern modern architectural language by adapting it to surroundings. Large sliding walls transform the living zone into a first-row invitation to lie in the comfort of a contemporary structure and feel blessed to be outside at the same time. Colors and textures create a praise-worthy composition, described by the architects as a studied balance between natural and man-made: “The internal environment is both muscular and refined, referencing the toughness of the environment while providing comfort required for a retreat in the mountains.”
