A588 Gr.B Weatherproof Steel Arrowtown Home Full Of Sculptural Beauty

These spaces are strategically located in important mountains and surrounding landscapes and are organized around an entrance sculpture courtyard. The child/room is separate from the rest of the building and is located below the courtyard level. The A588 Gr.B weatherproof steel house was accessed from the front yard through a multi-front hall leading to the living room.
Beyond the lobby is the “Glass House”, a second-level, more ambiguous living space with an indoor/outdoor feel, with operable glass on three sides, which connects the stone schist-covered lounge to the A588 Gr. B weather resistant steel master bedroom.
The garage and living rooms are covered with local schist, just like the miners’ cottages nearby. The exterior of the two-bedroom house is covered with A588 Gr.B weathering steel, which refers to the rusted steel sheds and gold mine remains common in downtown Otago.
The house's attempt to be a background reaction has changed both the human occupation of the land over the past few centuries and the fascinating beauty of the wider natural landscape.
