Located on the shores of Lake Wanaka, the Brewer House by studio Sarah Scott Architects is a fresh take on tradition. This contemporary cabin faces New Zealand's Southern Alps and the mouth or river Matukituki, the gorgeous setting of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Sitting atop an eroded hill, the residence varies in levels and features an angled roof that changes in height. The home's general plan follows the contours of its rocky, surrounding terrain and is focused on revealing views of these stunning landscapes.
The Brewer House by studio Sarah Scott Architects plays with the lines of its landscape and modernizes a traditional wood cabin design. This serene family home is surrounded by vast acres that are a great place for children to grow up.
