Kotuku Flats Refurbishment banner

The project involves the upgrading of 104 flats including refurbishment of existing bedsit units and the amalgamation of units into 1, 2 and 4 bedroom flats. It also includes exterior recladding and landscaping.

The existing x4 blocks of the Kotuku Apartments each consisted of x4 levels of 30m² studios. These have been increased to 45, 60 and 90m² of 1, 2 and 4 Bedroom apartments. The arrangement of 2 and 4 bedroom units to the ground floors has been designed to encourage families to live in the apartment blocks and to provide the tenants direct access to the new landscaped site by providing additional access from the living room to private courtyards. Studios and 1 Bedroom apartments have been reconfigured to better utilise the space while still maintaining existing riser locations servicing all floors to levels 1, 2 and 3.
