Conference

New Zealand

This project is an exploration of central city planning and clarity of built form.  Each dwelling sits as a pair of container like forms.  The lower is a steel clad form housing the garages and creating privacy to the street through its solidity.  The upper is a cedar-clad form that cantilevers 3.5m toward the street boundary, capitalizing on a reduced 2.0m street setback in the area.  The dark material palette intentionally terminates a series of white plastered dwellings that seemed to be setting the design precedence in the street.
