2017 Hawkes Bay/Gisborne Architecture Awards Winner
Craggy Range - The Lodge
Within an existing footprint, a private luxury guest lodge has been thoughtfully converted from a 20-year-old residence for a winemaker. Throughout, this expansive home-away-from home delivers unpretentious comfort in its established Hawkes Bay vineyard setting. The building is meticulously detailed and executed; quality materials and well-proportioned forms and spaces match the high standard of the neighbouring winery buildings and accommodation. Bare floorboards, high ceilings and painted timber linings create an atmosphere of rustic sophistication, and generous openings provide easy connection to landscaped gardens and a rejuvenated private central courtyard. This is the place to settle back with a glass of wine, soak up the sun and marvel at an astonishingly beautiful location.
