It’s no secret that New Zealand is a land of gratuitous mystery — housing expansive mountain regions, sprawling fjords, and crystal clear bodies of water that yearn for exploration. But as the country’s mesmerizing springs and summers begin to dwindle, its harsh landscape transitions away from “wondrous sanctuary” into something far less hospitable.

The Alpine Terrace House, built by Fearon Hay Architects, was constructed to provide denizens with the perfect escape from New Zealand’s abominable winters. Nestled within the country’s Southern Alps, the 370 square-meter property is constituted by several adjoining modules that unify to create an enclosed, haven-like courtyard. A minimalistic black exterior provides a stark contrast to the muted green countryside, while the home’s superb wood, concrete, and metal interior provide a wistful living space. Walls adorned in abstract artwork and expansive, running windows provide inhabitants with picturesque views, regardless of their location within the home.
