11 - 13 GEORGE STREET APARTMENTS
Location: NEWMARKET | AUCKLAND
Completed: 2005

These 19 apartments are located opposite the Domain in Auckland. The large north facing decks the museum and represent their own colonnade.
The top floor roof terrace floats free from the concrete columns and main structure of the building to allow sun through a skylight to penetrate deeper into the living rooms. A gym complete with spa and sauna is incorporated into the design and allows for owners and tenants to have social interaction. Creating a social space to interact is something we try to incorporate into all of our multiple residential and commercial projects.
The layout of the apartments allow great freedom and flexibility to accommodate more than just the nuclear family. Kitchenettes and separate laundry facilities allow greater separation and independence for adult children, guests or family. Materials utilized include pre-cast concrete, allucobond, basalt tiles, zinc feature doors and panels.
