Kotuku: Alpine Shelter, New Zealand
Designed by Graham Roebeck

From: Queenstown, New Zealand
Shelter location: New Zealand
Date accepted: August 23, 2009

Located at Jacks Point, Queenstown and built to last our blistering summers and snowy winters, this concept is constructed from timber lined polystyrene sandwich panel with zinc standing seam cladding. The undershot glazing minimizes reflections and the building dynamically responds to activities and its environment with opening panels mimicking animal bio-mechanics. Inspired by an Origami Crane, or New Zealand Kotuku; the Boffi ‘Sling’ bed is reminiscent of a bird’s nest.
