Turn Point Lodge, Marlborough Sounds

Turn Point Lodge, an idyllic hideaway designed by Tennent+Brown Architects, is perched on an isolated hillside overlooking part of the Marlborough Sounds.

Each of the three component parts is clad and roofed with ColorCote AlumiGard pre-painted aluminium. The Ironsand colour was chosen to fit with the marine environment.

Because of its isolated location and limited access for heavy machinery – the most direct route to Turn Point Lodge is a 40-minute boat ride through the Marlborough Sounds – the three building units and subfloors were built off-site at Mahikapawa by David Kepes of Timbercraft Construction. The finished units were then lifted into position after a five minute flight down Pelorus Sound by a helicopter operated by Heli Harvest Limited.
