A unique site with unparalleled views down Grafton Gully to Rangitoto and the Hauraki Gulf this small city lot makes the most of an unusual site perched at the edge of the motorway. Comprising two generous apartments with parking underneath, this project set to redefine luxury city living. 

Clad in black metal, the tough exterior was designed to withstand the fumes and grime from the motorway below. This tough shell opens up to pocket corner decks lined with warm timber, large expanses of glass to make the most of the extraordinary views, and large, light-filled open living spaces. Small details like the heat pump concealed behind a grate in a bulkhead, the solid timber floors, or the full-length tile splashback along the kitchen seamlessly come together to create a luxurious and comfortable home at the edge of the city.
