The Wairakei Golf Course and Wildlife Sanctuary is an Internationally known destination and one of the premier Golf Courses in New Zealand.


First Principles Architects were engaged by the client to design the new Wairakei Lodge to compliment this unique and very special natural environment.


The Lodge has been fully master planned with a preliminary design for 20 x 3 bedroom villas providing an accommodation pool of 60 rooms, all with en suite bathrooms.


Each villa is ‘twin keyed’ with a split relaxation deck overlooking Fairway No 1 and the Reserve.


The external appearance has dark timber cladding, stone feature walls, outdoor fire places and a steeply pitched roof of various heights to integrate into the heavily treed landscape.


The main lodge has a reception area, 2 bars, a restuarant and wrap around verandahs overlooking Fairways 1 and 2 and some Tee Boxes.
