Summer Gardens Apartments

With its considerable experience in higher density development, Construkt was a natural choice as architect and lead consultant for this luxury apartment complex on Campbell Rd in Takapuna.

Rezoned for Terraced Housing and Apartments under the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan, the 1391m2 site can accommodate a six storey building, with space for a mix of one- to three-bedroom units, two spacious penthouse suites, a communal terrace and swimming pool – all constructed to a 6 Homestar standard.

Positioned in a Special Housing Area, the complex will also target the required 10 per cent affordability requirement with three one-bedroom apartments.

The eye catching crowning of the building draws from the pitched rooflines of the surrounding houses, providing a clean and contemporary aesthetic which knits the building comfortably into its context. This architectural language ensures a visually unique building, both at street level and afar.

Both eastern and western facades utilise a clever combination of continuous operable metal screens, colour and texture to visually break up the building bulk. The screens, apart from creating visual interest, perform multiple practical roles; solar screening, privacy control, providing dimension and enhancing the neighbourhood’s visual amenity.
