The project began in 2019 as THE DESIGNFIRE was engaged in providing full architectural documentation packages for the new residential development for the site.
We designed a set of two duplex houses in the Mt Albert area. The site is a corner site bound by two arterial roads which presented some traffic issues to consider. As there were no parking available on the street, a double garage for each unit has been proposed. Each unit has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a large roof balcony.
THE DESIGNFIRE was engaged by our client to proceed with consenting documentation based on the concept design.
The construction is to be precast concrete panel inter-tenancy walls with timber-framed interior walls. The upper floors will be timber floors and a concrete slab foundation.
The design solution was to provide feature mid-level façade with a recess opening feature. Also with the larger overhang roofing at the top with set back that forms the rooftop gardens. Aesthetically, this effectively reduced visual volumes of the scale at the frontage. At the same time, the layout remains functional and provides a high-quality spatial experience, especially at the top level where the master bedroom is located.
