Terraced Housing

Year of Design


Situated in central Kumeu, an affluent rural community and winegrowing district, this development is conveniently close to the neighbouring historic town of Riverhead and 25 km north-west of Auckland’s city centre. In response to the problem of increasingly high housing prices and to accentuate views of the surrounding natural landscape, we adapted a terrace housing typology to meet the New Zealand way of life and suit conditions of the site. Our design ensures the development meets a consistently high standard of design quality and appearance. The development provides 46 terraced housing units close to Riverhead forest. The units have been designed as two-level terraced houses that positively address the street and accentuate the vista, while improving residents’ living standards. A thorough evaluation of the construction process and costs during the designing phase have allowed these homes to remain economical.
