Terraced Housing

Year of Design


This 685m2 site is an irregular shape situated on the western side of Keate Place, Mt Wellington. The existing residential dwelling will be demolished in order to allow for a new residential development. We were able to design six 2-3 storey terraced-style residential dwellings on the site in spite of site restrictions. The design incorporates two separate buildings to accommodate the six residential units. The front block will have two duplex-style dwellings, and will be three storeys in height fronting onto Keate Place. The rear block will have the remaining four dwellings in a terraced-style development and will be two storeys high. The six units are a mix of two, three and four bedroom units ranging in size from 73 sqm to 109 sqm, to suit different household sizes. All of the units have open plan living, dining and kitchen areas and good indoor-outdoor flow. Natural light and cross ventilation were taken into consideration in the design process to provide the highest level of comfort and functionality to residents.
