Pleased to report in competition with 16 of the best hotels in the world The Lindis Lodge in the Waitaki District, South Island was selected by the Jury as the winner.

WAF judges citation:

"poetic, inspiring secluded lodge, sensitively considered, hence seated elegantly within its extreme weather open landscape. An innovative piece of parametric architecture assembled by local labour on site. Most sustainable project from water treatment, heating, cooling, natural ventilation, insulation; just amazing!"

Architecture Workshop would like to thank the client, consultants and the contractors who worked long hours on this isolated site.

Thank you to the WAF judges who appreciated the design intent of  The Lindis Lodge.
