2017 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
An adapted townhouse typology has been designed to suit a well-established community and aid its efforts to repatriate dispersed iwi members. Alternative financial structures for land ownership and lending have had a positive impact on this affordable housing project and enabled a high quality result. Spatially generous in the main daily use areas and in the provision of areas with flexible programming, the designs allow for extended family use. True “ownership” of the entire project remains with the community, who were highly engaged from the initial stages.
