Ashley Reserve Terraces
The documentation of eight, three-bedroom terrace houses next to Ashley Reserve in Long Bay has now been completed, and Building Consent is imminent. These terraces continue Construkt’s ongoing presence in the wider Long Bay area with multiple clients, from high level master-planning to residential ‘superlot’ developments.
A key design principle for the terraces was to create a strong sense of connection to the outdoors. This was achieved through the openness to the private outdoor living areas, including generous upper level balconies, and visual links over the bounding reserve and street. Native planting softens the edges of the lots. The forms of the terraces follow the Long Bay Design Guidelines, reflecting the seaside village characteristics of casualness and informality through clear, defined gable roofs and lightness with regard to secondary forms and façade treatments.
Construction of a previous residential super block design by Construkt on nearby Makura Road is close to completion, with many of the units already occupied.
