Construction of the Arrowtown Lifestyle Village’s residents’ lodge is nearing completion and will replace the interim residents’ lodge which will be converted into a luxury three-bedroom home. QT Magazine spoke to marketing manager Jennie Anderson about the contemporary new lodge.
What is the architectural design and aesthetic of the new building?
The luxury building is a mix of traditional lodge style features combined with contemporary design elements. It uses natural materials such as timber and stone and large windows allow plenty of natural light. The vaulted ceiling throughout the dining area and lounges is a key element and the interior design comprises timber and schist stone features along with a rustic, earthy colour palette.
What facilities are housed in the Residents’ Lodge?
The luxury lodge facilities are designed to provide a high level of comfort and convenience for residents. These include gymnasium, spa and swimming pool and a range of communal spaces such as fireside lounge, club bar, dining area, library and games room. The private cinema is much anticipated addition to the village. Outside the lodge a new pétanque piste and eventually a bowling green will complete the package.
Why are these types of facilities attractive for the village and what benefits do they bring residents?
The facilities offer residents a high standard of living with access to a range of amenities and services all in one place. This helps foster a sense of community and belonging among residents providing opportunities to get together with others in the village for social reasons as well as sport, exercise or special interests. People living outside the village generally do not have access to such a wide range of amenities available on their doorstep.
Are there new residences still available in the village?
Arrowtown Lifestyle Village is about to release its final stage of two and three-bedroom villas which will be followed by luxurious apartments in one, two, and three-bedroom configurations. The demand for these new properties currently exceeds the number of homes we have available highlighting the desirability of living in this special, alpine community.
