Central Terraces provides safe, affordable, healthy, homes, designed for modern living that addresses Auckland’s high demand for increased housing density. It takes advantage of the opportunities the site has to offer with excellent all day sun and a gentle cross fall that minimises shading across the site. The development has been design to integrate in to its neighbourhood in terms of scale and offers good streetscape, amenity and intensification.
The townhouses have good access to sunlight both in terms of private outdoor spaces and internal living areas. The development includes a mixture of two storey dwellings containing two bedrooms and three storey dwellings containing three bedrooms. The composition of two storey and three storey dwellings maintains a sensitivity to the surrounding residential scale as well as adding interest and diversity.
The material pallet includes a mixture of coloured metal cladding, long run roofing, weatherboards and stained cedar in a combination of light and dark tones. This establishes a modern durable aesthetic for the development that does not dominate the street but instead recedes back and further individualises the units.
