Bivvy House

Lake Wakatipu, New Zealand

Ten minutes drive from the heart of Queenstown, Bivvy House enjoys panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and nearby mountain ranges. Designed by Vaughn Mcquarrie, the two-bedroom alpine villa follows the lines of the mountainside by sloping down towards the view. The name is derived from ‘bivouac’ — an improvised campsite often sporting unconventional angles.

The interior is crafted with concrete and plywood, providing a balanced and relaxed atmosphere, complete with modern finishes and high-end appliances. Instead of creating a glass box, the windows were designed to offer a curated series of different views depending on the type of room. This creates a sense of shelter while also taking in the surrounding nature — an ideal escape from urban life.
