Designed by renowned architect Pip Cheshire, the property was purpose built as an art gallery/studio and apartment for acclaimed New Zealand artist, Terry Stringer. The gallery space and park like surroundings showcased his bronze sculptures and the property was open to the public as Zealandia Sculpture Gardens in 2001.
The property has since been transformed from art studio, gallery and home into a luxury accommodation retreat, 2 boutique apartments. The goal was to retain the aesthetic of the buildings, preserve the artwork of Terry Stringer, while providing people with the opportunity to experience the unique spaces and environment.
The Gallery Accommodation features a native bush walk through towering Rimu and Kauri trees. Listen to the birdsong from Tuis, Woodpigeons, Kookaburras and Kingfishers as you descend the staircase. When you arrive at the viewing platform, you’ll be met by a mighty 1000 year old Kauri tree bearing the mark of a lightning strike from over 200 years ago.
Take a moment to reflect on the Contemplation bench; be still at the water’s edge by the fish pond and make a promise beside the Truth Gate.
Owners Ash and Jane were inspired by connection one of the highest human needs. The intention of The Gallery Accommodation is to create an experience for people to reconnect with each other and with nature. We invite you to leave your devices in flight mode and make a conscious effort to return to each other within the beautiful natural surroundings
