Bombay Terraces is an exemplar project for multi-unit housing located in the heart of Khandallah, Wellington. They provide high quality, affordable, architectural homes, that are well designed for modern living and contribute to Wellington’s demand for increased housing density.
The development consists of seventeen contemporary residences, in six appropriately scaled buildings that fit comfortably within their surrounding context. The design responds to the qualities of the area and contributes positively to the neighbourhood character.
All of the townhouses are orientated to the north and receive excellent sun as well as having extensive views over Khandallah, Ngaio and the distant hills and harbour. Entry is at ground level where the living areas are located with bedrooms located on the level above. Each unit also has its own outdoor courtyard opening from its adjacent living areas.
The external cladding consists of dark coloured flat profiled metal on the roofing and exterior side walls, complemented with light or dark stained cedar weatherboards. This gives each residence their own individual identity and provides a contemporary and engaging appearance.
