These four Hereford Apartments in Christchurch are designed to maximise the site coverage within urban planning regulations, while also engaging with the local built environment and community in a positive manner.
The apartments are constructed from quality materials, designed to last, and focus on being cost effective to construct. Internal spaces are comfortably spaced, with the upper storey apartments within the lofted roof reminiscent of European apartments.
The design, by Greg Young of Young Architects, won the Residential Multi-Unit Dwelling Award at the 2019 Canterbury/Westland Regional ADNZ Resene Architectural Design Awards. Judges said “the designer has successfully created four tiny single-bedroom units of rare spatial quality.
“Spatial interest and outdoor entertaining spaces have been cleverly packed into compact
plans under a memorable triple-gable roof.”
