THE POINT APARTMENTS
Viaduct Harbour in Auckland, reinvented from its days of industrial usage, is now a vibrant waterfront precinct accessible to all, with promenades, cafes, restaurants, retail, boats, maritime museum, hotels, and apartments.
The Point Apartments occupy a key site fronting onto Waitemata Square and the Lighter Basin. The design provides for 85 apartments of various sizes and types over five levels, respecting and developing the Auckland City Council's planning and environment guidelines.
Every apartment has a generous 3 metre deep deck, to take advantage of Auckland's climate and planning and the design has been carefully tailored to the needs of a variety of apartment dwellers.
The design uses a contemporary language and a restrained palette of materials comprising of exposed aggregate concrete, stainless steel, steel and timber (notably in the use of adjustable and movable shutters).
