Grand Designs NZ


PHOTO: MEDIAWORKS Musicians Justine Cormack and Marc Taddei found the design for their wedge house in the US. They flipped it for the Southern Hemisphere and it’s working a treat.

REVIEW: Look around Central Otago and you can’t miss the archetypical alpine houses – there’s loads of schist, timber and gabled roofs. And it’s all rather quaint and predictable.

But that’s not what classical musicians, violinist Justine Cormack and conductor Marc Taddei want – they’re going rugged for their Grand Designs NZ build.

A rugged site, with no neighbours in sight, yet. And they’re doing things their way, with a design for a huge wedge house they found in the States. On paper it looks like a giant doorstop that rises out of the landscape, reaching a crescendo at one end. (Host, architect Chris Moller is not lost for opportunities to reference the music connection.)
