Vinegar Lane Mixed Use

Grey Lynn, Auckland

The Vinegar Lane project is for a small apartment building in a unique high
density urban neighbourhood. The project was subject to a special design
panel as well as the usual Resource Consent process. Two, two bedroom
apartments are located on each level above two commercial spaces, one
with an extra high stud.
The design uses concrete precast panels to solve both structural and fire
issues avoiding the need for sprinklers. Over this is a perforated aluminium
screen that gives the building a unique stature amongst the varied and
visually rich streetscape. The screen has been carefully designed to
achieve an exact balance of privacy, light and outlook.
