The task

A private developer wanted to further their assets in the multi-unit residential market. This presented an opportunity to inject medium density housing into the urban fabric of Titirangi, aligning with Auckland’s future housing goals. The surrounding urban infrastructure was examined and deemed capable of the additional residences, and with extensive site work we were able to add five new houses to an existing single lot.

Our thinking

The design and layout of the subdivision needed careful consideration to meet Auckland Council’s design guidelines whilst maximising the site coverage. Material selection was important to allow efficient construction methodology by the contractor.

The result

Architecturally designed houses that were visually appealing, modern and comfortable, and cost effective in terms of layout, waste minimisation, utilisation of space and sensible duplication of design details and language. The houses for the most part were designed to NZS3604 for simplicity of construction.
