2021 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
Kāinga Ora | Brookfield and Onehunga Mall Housing Development
This Kāinga Ora housing development is well positioned and holds the corner of a busy road with confidence. The buildings are arranged around a northern landscape aspect overlooked by sunny decks. By staggering the buildings, the architect has skilfully created visual interest and broken down the mass of the development within its low-density context. A cleverly restrained material palette will stand the test of time with brick offering a familiar materiality and sense of quality. A finer and more contemporary mesh detail adds interest to circulation cores. This project demonstrates the importance of good design and material choices when offering high-quality design to multi-unit developments.
