The Edgerley

Epsom, Auckland

This attractive and unique building was designed to comply with the now abandoned planning zone, Residential 8. The rules of the zone included height in relation to boundaries, and recession planes, causing the building to step away from boundaries. 

Block 1

The development has five levels of apartments and basement car parking. There are 81 apartments. The building is elegantly conceptualised as a U-shaped form in the southeast corner of the site with a fractured L-shaped form wrapped around its northeast corner.

Block 4

A variety of external spaces are created with an interesting series of visually unfolding circulation pathways in and around the building. The building sits well in its suburban context. Its unusual plan layout and response to the recession planes of the old zone together with a variety of materials and colours make a playful and visually interesting addition to Newmarket’s suburban fabric.
