Our clients own the site on Wadestown’s steepest drive-able street – a 1-in-4 gradient in this part of Weld St! Challenging access on local roads made the first choice of a transported modular Te Whare-iti impractical, so this two-bedroom home on two levels, based upon the Te Whare-iti plan, will be built in-situ. Construction will be complete mid-2020.
New townhouse on Weld St
Wellington Potters’ Association
Wellington Potters’ Association owns a 1960s building in Thorndon originally built for a drama school. Aonui is managing the re-roofing and re-cladding contract to ensure the 600 members and their work stay dry and secure for another 50 years.
Te Whare-iti has won a national competition for infill housing, specifically designed for Auckland backyards but is proving equally popular elsewhere with buyers wanting small homes for their beach sections, lifestyle blocks and retirement villages.
Extended family living under one roof for reasons of tradition rather than economic necessity is becoming common in New Zealand especially among the more recent immigrant community.
Waikanae Active Solar House
This heavily insulated house is the second to be completed at Greenaway Gardens and demonstrates the flexibility of active solar design.
