One of the most ambitious developments in Auckland to date, converting the former airbase at Hobsonville Point in the upper Waitemata Harbour into a vibrant community the size of Devonport is a vast challenge.
Construkt played a key role in masterplanning this community of 3,000 dwellings across 167ha, and their involvement has since extended into designing individual homes, seeing the process through to completion. To date more than 250 homes of multiple types – around half of those built so far on the site – have been designed by Construkt.
The Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan also calls for affordable housing to be built in Hobsonville, and here Construkt’s considerable expertise in higher density solutions proves a key strength. By combining their knowledge of developers’ needs with their design nous in this space the practice is creating attractive, affordable homes that contribute to a sense of community, with their compact, village feel.
