Jervois Road is a highly bespoke apartment building in Herne Bay, Auckland. An undulating street-side metal screen spans over 4 levels of apartments and offers a scaled interpretation of the bay window motif common to many surrounding houses. The veil differentiates public and private worlds and clearly communicates the building’s dual roles – commercial and residential – to the street.
The site has sea-views to the rear and fronts a burgeoning retail zone street side. Massing and planning respond to these conditions with a simple geometric form that challenges the site’s development regulations but ensures a graceful form.
