Location: Glenorchy, Queenstown

Completed: 2014


The Aro Hā Retreat is an off the grid yoga and wellbeing retreat, located outside of Queenstown.

Sustainability and efficiency were guiding principles behind the design of the retreat. These principles were carried through into the structure with the use of timber construction, prefabrication and use of locally sourced materials. The significant number of building services required to achieve an off the grid project were integrated into the structure without compromising the architectural integrity.

DTC serviced this project during design through remote working technologies and selectively partnered with local consultants for the construction phase.
