Urban Design and Architecture

Remarkables Park unique urban design and architecture celebrates the rich character of Central Otago while drawing inspiration from contemporary New Zealand architecture and hallmarks of successful international resorts.

Before retiring Eldon Beck, the inspirational original master planner for Remarkables Park, had a distinguished career of more than 30 years as an educator and practitioner in landscape, architecture and planning.  Eldon was dedicated to revealing the 'special thing' in the special place, and reflecting the natural environment in the built environment. 

Thanks to his vision, Remarkables Park buildings are orientated to maximise views of The Remarkables mountain range, Coronet Peak ski area, the Crown Range and the Kawarau River, and include intimate views into and out from landscaped courtyards, lanes and plazas. Eldon was the urban designer of many successful USA and Canadian resorts as well as new resort design in Europe. 

Ray Letkeman, one of North America's most experienced resort architects, who wanted for many years in conjunction with Eldon Beck, has since continued the planning for Remarkables Park this includes plans to more than double the size of the Remarkables Park Town Centre. He has designed distinctive and contrasting buildings in America, Canada, Hawaii and Remarkables Park.
