A residential masterplanning project for McConnell Property Group’s unique site, located on the fringe of Pukekohe, south of Auckland. Prior to 2006 Oculus prepared an overall masterplan with architectural input from Construkt, including design guidelines, to ensure a high quality development by controlling urban, landscape and architectural design. However, a key component of the masterplan, the village centre, had yet to be developed fully and this was progressed during 2008.
Construkt and Oculus worked collaboratively with the client to produce a developed masterplan plan that allowed varying forms of terraced housing to sit within a pedestrian friendly environment. Construkt produced preliminary designs for all of the terraced houses and apartment buildings including a landmark building and plaza space. Construkt was also engaged by Anselmi’s builder partners to design selected houses. Construkt designed five of the Haven houses as well as the Day Residential Showhome.
