Talbot Park Community Housing

Auckland

2006

This major renewal of existing Housing New Zealand properties is a flagship project completed in conjunction with Auckland City. The Glen Innes units are now providing high quality housing for their tenants.

A number of Auckland architects were engaged in various parts of the development to ensure visual variety and high-quality design. 

The approved Boffa Miskell masterplan involved replacing low density housing with variously sized house types within the suburb's new medium-density redevelopment. 

ASC Architects designed two blocks of four terraces. The three-bedroom units face a new street on the east, but are serviced from a rear service lane to the west. This arrangement allowed courtyards on both frontages and carports at the rear, and ensured both morning and afternoon sun into all units.
