Conference - Common Architecture | ArchiPro NZ

This project is an exploration of Christchurch's central city planning regulations and clarity of built form.  Each dwelling sits as a pair of container like forms.  The lower is a steel clad form housing the garages, positioned to create privacy to the street through its solidity.  The upper is a cedar clad form that cantilevers 3.5m toward the street boundary, capitalising on a reduced 2.0m street setback in the area.  The dark materially palette intentionally terminates a series of white plastered dwellings that seemed to be setting the design precedence in the street.
