'The Lindis' Lodge, a recently completed five bedsuite luxury lodge in the Ahuriri Valley, North Otago, designed by Christopher Kelly Founder and Principal of Architecture Workshop, has been reviewed in URBIS (ed 108, Feb 2019).
The lodge responds uniquely to the large scale of the special and isolated Ahuriri alpine valley. Its form elegantly integrates with the topography of the glacial morraine of the surrounding environment while the lamella gridshell with it s rainscreen roof enfolds the soaring interior and anchors the roof to the ground.
"In imitating the Huxley Range, The Lindis doesn't simply take in the expansive alpine views; it forms a relationship with them - one that can only be described as symbiotic, respectful of the land and entirely luxurious." - Urbis, 108, Feb 2019
