Arahia is a five townhouse development across a compact site in Auckland.
The project called for careful planning that maximised the housing, carparking and outdoor amenity area.
The units were designed in a white bagged brick materiality to emphasise the formal simplicity of the massing.
Each unit comprised a two level block arranged with interstitial garage spacing the units and giving them a simple rhythm as they step up the site.
The landscape was designed as verdant and lush to contrast with the simple material palette and massing of the building while ensuring privacy between units and from the circulation in front of them.
