Temple View Project: Western Housing Stage 3
Construkt is involved in revitalising Temple View, a suburb on the outskirts of Hamilton. Engaged by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), the practice is involved in the design of a 16 unit integrated residential development along the suburb’s main road.
The 16 units differ in size to attract a diverse new group of residents to the existing community. The development consists of duplex and standalone units to cater for families, couples, and extended families.
Located in a special character area, the designs of the units have been carefully considered to complement the 1950’s character of Temple View. A combination of simple forms, contrasting colour palette, and a mix of textures have generated an architectural style that recognizes the community’s heritage whilst reflecting contemporary construction techniques and style.
The former LDS Church Project Design Manager, Don White, says it’s been a truly engaging process. “It’s been a very collaborative activity with plenty of good dialogue. Construkt has a real handle on the needs of the development, which is reflected in the designs they have created”.
