Woods were engaged to develop housing designs on a large sloping site at Royal Road, Massey, which had a Mixed Housing Urban zoning.
The proposed subdivision design and scheme plan for the Royal Road Stage 3 site is shown in the scheme plan below. It includes 57 lots, that are a mix of terraces and duplexes. There are eight designated affordable lots and two vacant lots that are already consented thus not included in this application.
The scheme has been developed to respond acutely to the difficult sloping topography of the site. The layout of the lots and typologies of the houses have been designed to fit with their specific locations.
The proposal has a good mix of housing typologies with lots of varying sizes and widths. There are a range of solutions that are suitable for each of the site contexts. This mix creates an attractive diversity of houses along the street and ensures the neighbourhood has an interesting character.
