hawkesbury residence

at the base of the wanaka valley, the 'hawkesbury residence' by los angeles-based marmol radziner overlooks the 
rolling farmland of mt barker, new zealand. oriented with an elongated elevation towards the north, the dwelling is protected 
by a deep roof eave to block the strong sun of the southern hemisphere while framing the distant alpine peaks. approaching the homestead,
the structure is encompassed by and recedes into the barren hillside beyond. the linear configuration and shallow footprint allows 
sweeping mountain views from all of the interior rooms which are framed by the roofline and cedar deck.
