MATZ ARCHITECTS | St Lukes Apt

St Lukes Apt

Located in the busy inner Auckland City suburb of St Lukes, the design for this apartment and townhouse development has taken strong influence from the European Cohousing movement. Private outdoor space is reduced, and shared laundry facilities are proposed which aids in allowing for the large central communal space that houses a lawn for kids to play, people to picnic and casual interactions to occur. This large communal courtyard also allows abundant natural light into all the apartments nearby. Communal roof gardens are also proposed to encourage sustainability, a sense of purpose and allow for informal meetings between residents.
