Project Type: Multiunit Residential, Townhouses
Location: Wallace Street, Mt Cook, Wellington.
Status: Currently under construction
Located in the middle of the busy and somewhat iconic character filled Wallace Street, these four townhouses respond to the unique characteristics of this particular site. Designed as modern houses, they have a respect for the character context of Mt Cook, they are have a restraint in their scale, form and language that sits comfortably within the surrounding neighbourhood.Careful design has efficiently created integrated internal and external living, with the intimate courtyard spaces of each house being a private extension of the ground floor open plan living.
Each townhouse has two upstairs bedrooms, with ceilings following the roof lines creating a sense of volume to make the most of their efficient layouts. Carparking has been kept to a minimum, responding to the location within easy walking distance to the CBD and directly on a major bus route.
