Addison gets thumbs up in case study
As the developers of the Addison community in Takanini, we are passionate about what we’ve created, so it’s great to see others can see the project in the same light.
Auckland Design Manual carried out a case study a few years ago of our master planned community, focusing in particular on the 18 houses built on Bruce Pullman Drive that overlook a lush, green reserve.
Praising the development for its innovative design, the case study said the development “tested new ground for medium density development that put a priority on integrated master planning and best practice design.”
Crucial to the project’s success was the rear lane that went behind the houses, according to Auckland Design Manual, which includes visitor parking, seating and high quality paving materials. Not only does this design create an open, sunny space for the front of the site, it also creates a safe and secure environment at the rear of the houses.
The case study also praised the positioning of the homes, which are designed to make the most out of west and east facing sun and naturally heat, light and cool the homes throughout the year.
The reviewers were also impressed by the secondary accommodation situated overtop some of the garages, making the properties more diverse and flexible for buyers.
Auckland Design Manual highlighted the aesthetic details of the property; while the colours and materials were consistent across the board, they also opened doors for individualism, featuring four distinct variations of colour.
Overall, they said that pushing the boundaries with good design is valuable in both the short and long term, as housing in Addison achieved higher prices and is increasing in value at a much faster rate than comparable properties in neighbouring areas.
