Domain Terraces

Terraced housing can play a crucial role in higher density city living, with Australia’s extensive stock of historic terraced homes now a design classic.

Asked to design a high-end Australian-style development on a triangular site in Auckland, Construkt were able to sample the unique character of the lucky country’s major cities.

Thus, the terraces facing Auckland Domain along George Street were modelled on elegant Sydney homes, and featured varied roof styles to give a sense of having been built over time; the cleaner façade of the homes over Carlton Gore Rd was a nod to the Melbourne style, while the more laidback Brisbane terraces face the internal courtyard. The 37 houses in the group have since been awarded the publically nominated People’s Choice Mayoral Urban Design Award.
