Proposing a series of high-quality residential buildings within the desirable location of Red Beach, we designed a series of residences of housing types ranging from two to four-bedroom affordable terrace and duplex homes.
The design of each residential building unit consists of high-quality materials and fabrication methods. The choice of a neutrally toned material palette throughout the interior and exterior creates a naturally warm and inviting space for the residence. The material variation between buildings are used to provide a contrast over a large scale of the development.
The variations of the buildings consist of Gable roof structures, where the massing of houses suggests an informal response to the internal planning. The idea of gable roof structures was to help identify with New Zealand Vernacular architecture, creating a home-base to which the people of red beach can identify with.
