  • Attractively situated next to Albany Lakes, Rose Garden Apartments is a four-stage iconic development introducing vertical living to the newly-formed metropolitan area of Albany. Throughout the development process, we explored the sense of place and what it means to live, work and play in one well-resourced location.

    The first-stage apartment buildings wrap around the site’s perimeter; responding sensitively to all aspects of the site and enhancing and protecting the view shaft from the lakes to the Waitakere Ranges. By enveloping the perimeter, the building forms a protected raised courtyard in the centre for all residents to enjoy. Special care has been taken around the boundary to allow in natural light and views of the Ranges in the distance.

    Responding to the Auckland Unitary Plan, the Rose Garden Apartments contribute positively to the community by providing living, working and recreation amenity in a single, compact location. The newly created Lakeside Lane is activated with a variety of convenience and hospitality spaces at the ground floor which have a direct connection with the lakes. Further amenity such as the transport hub, Westfield Albany Mall, university and stadium are all within walking distance.

    The mass of the building is broken down into a series of structures that are related, but treated differently architecturally. This alternative form and material shift for each building is deliberate and creates a legible urban environment that enhances way-finding within the urban landscape, as well as providing individual identity and character. Simultaneously, the public and private realms are clearly separated, enhancing security and sense of ownership and responsibility.

    The apartments themselves each have their own balcony with the majority affording views to the lakes. The size and scale of the apartments and balconies have been designed to give a real human scale, an intimate feel within a large complex.

    The Rose Garden Apartments bring a positive, modern prospect to the Albany Lakes area.
