Queenstown River House

A brand new build set along the Shotover, this Queenstown River House is your chance to move directly into an impressive piece of architecture. Designed by Kerr Ritchie, the house borders reserve land and boasts outstanding views, yet is just minutes from high-end shopping, dining, skiing, and golfing. Each of the bedrooms, the double-height main kitchen/dining/living area, and the outdoor spaces have been laid out to take advantage of the views, while features like oak flooring, feature fireplaces, and tiled ensuites beg to keep you indoors.

  • Invisible House

    Perched on a ridge in Australia's Blue Mountains, the Invisible House uses generous amounts of glazing to take advantage of its elevated setting. The concrete, glass, and steel exterior is protected by a massive cantilever roof that serves as both a thermal device and dam, reflecting sunlight off the water, lending to the home's covert namesake. Internally, the space maintains a palette of concrete, Mudgee stack stone, brass, and copper, while each of the four bedrooms are lined in plywood. Thanks to expansive openings in the east-facing walls, the Megalong Valley is on full display from nearly every inch of the interior.

  • Backcountry Hut

    Inspired by Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad's credo of providing well-designed products for the masses, the Backcountry Hut is a modular flat-packed shelter that can be placed nearly anywhere. They use a wooden post-and-beam frame filled in with prefabricated panels and an easy-to-attach window system to help make it as simple to assemble as any furniture you'll find at the blue blue retailer. The standard model strikes a good balance between rustic and modern, and the layout is easily customizable in terms of both design and dimensions.
