Kairangi Community Development



CLIENT: urvashi TRUST | Environmental Planning: Boffa Miskell | Quantity Surveyor: Davis Langdon | Civil & Structural Engineering: Spire Consulting

This medium density housing development comprises 39 units in the first stage, with a further 27 units completed in later stages.

The housing is planned around a central pocket park, and features a mixture of affordable and accessible units for the private and public market. The design provides connectivity to the neighbourhood, by way of pedestrian pathway, lowering the traffic volumes within the site, with a shared low-speed carriageway for pedestrians and vehicles.

Dwellings are set out to maximise sun, views and private open spaces within a medium density pattern, allowing 2,3 and 4 bedroom properties so that a range of household sizes and types can be accommodated. Each home features a garage, a second car-park, and private outdoor space to augment the single level double aspect living areas, with upstairs bedroom and bathrooms.

The houses have distinct variations to cladding materials, colours and roof form to provide separate identity.
