Orakei Bay Village, Auckland
2015 - 2018
Orakei Point is a key strategic site within Auckland that allows for a high quality Transit Oriented Development. The site is conveniently located minutes from the CBD and is serviced by rail, bus and cycle facilities. The site has exceptional potential to create a high value residential development, drawing on the coastal aspect with outstanding views and outlook on all four sides. The mixed use development can provide both residential accommodation close to the CBD and introduce a live / work/play community.
The proposed development for Orakei Point takes into account key urban design principles to ensure that the development is of high quality, and results in a well integrated development, both internally and within the wider context of the site. The development focuses on providing a high quality living environment that is well connected, the built form responds to height controls and the coastal character and is focused around transport links.
The landscape and gardens of the development provide a lush green backdrop to the buildings. The development will ensure the perfect balance of the sophistication and exclusivity of a luxury resort, with a relaxed coastal atmosphere. The design seeks to provide a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces within a private oasis of native planting. Reset provided landscape and urban design services, including master planning and landscape and visual assessments.
