Mountain Retreat in The Southern Lakes of New Zealand

Fearon Hay Architects are a respected architecture studio based in Auckland, on the North Island of New Zealand.

The Southern Lakes of New Zealand are internationally known for soaring mountains – hill country with alpine lakes. The Southern Lakes is one of the most diverse and beautiful regions in New Zealand with breathtaking scenery.

The region runs from the dramatic landscapes of Fiordland in the south, to the rugged mountains and established, international four-season resort of Queenstown and to Lake Wanaka in the north, a place of tranquillity and beauty at the gateway to Mount Aspiring National Park.

This new building sits amidst the trees on a gentle slope near the entry to Iona College as a new symbol and public gesture of welcome. The strong sculptural language of sinuous curves and angled planes is drawn from the shapes of musical instruments and the folded landscape of Te Mata Peak.

The most potent and recognised symbol of Christianity is the cross. A symbol of atonement, it provides hope and inspiration to the faithful. The Chapel of St. Peter presents a confident and identifiable cross to its most public face signifying the buildings purpose, while providing a public message of God’s love and our salvation.
