We’ve worked with Context Architects to create a free series of terraced housing and apartment designs for typical Auckland site sizes.

As Auckland’s population grows our suburbs are changing. Single homes are increasingly being redeveloped into terraced houses and apartment buildings, but going up and filling in is not always easy.

Careful design is required to ensure that new developments remain affordable, provide a good quality of life for residents, and create safe, green neighbourhoods.

To assist designers & developers in delivering better quality medium density housing, Auckland Council has worked with Context Architects to develop a series of example designs.

Each example design demonstrates how to deliver high housing yields, while also creating livable homes and neighbourhoods. The examples range from six terrace homes to thirty-eight unit apartment blocks and are designed to fit the most common Auckland site sizes.
