The downstairs area is floored in polished concrete , and flanked on the north side by huge full-height windows through which  passive heat is gathered. The majority of the winter heating, however, is from a ground source heat pump that uses the latent energy in the earth — a relatively new solution in New Zealand. The site of this family home outside Queenstown, New Zealand  is in a slight depression, and surrounded by mountains, so architect Bergendy Cooke kept the footprint small and built upwards to give access to the views. Inside, family-friendly details abound, including a custom bunk bed.
