Wilson Building Ltd
Bunker House

Considered one of the most beautiful spots in New Zealand, Lake Tekapo is now home to a unique build that Thompson have had the opportunity to be a part of.

Wilson Building Ltd engaged Thompson to partner with them to bring their client’s vision to life with a one-of-a-kind residence on the side of Mt. John. The ‘Bunker House’ is nestled into the slopes and features stunning views over the Mackenzie Country and across to the Southern Alps.

A large proportion of this build has been dug back into the hillside therefore the house has been constructed primarily of precast concrete panels for the strength, resilience and thermal properties which the material provides.

The house will feature a large glass front elevation that will soak in the dazzling scenery. It will have an underground precast tunnel accessway to a hangar further up the slope behind the house giving this build a sense of fun and adventure.

Once complete, the bunker home will have little visual impact on the surrounding landscape but will have left its mark in terms of an extraordinary dwelling showcasing the versatility of Thompson precast concrete.
