As a rapidly developing area of Auckland, Hobsonville has established an identity that is extending across the peninsula.
The Scotts point Plan Change enabled land along Scott Road to be zoned Mixed Housing Suburban and accelerate land development. Woods were commissioned by Neil Group to prepare a qualifying development for 5 & 5A Scott Road. This superlot consists of 26 terraces with rear loaded garages and is grouped in duplex and triplexes to provide breaks in the articulation of the buildings and to accomodate site level changes.
To provide a high-quality street interface to Scott Road and Road 1 to meet the ‘Green Street’ aspirations, all garages and car pads are rear-loaded from a ‘T’-shaped private lane.
The development has a mix of housing types from 2-bed terraces to 4-bed duplexes. A generous private open space is provided at the rear between the house and garages/ lanes. In order to create an interesting streetscape variation, mono-pitch roofs were used in various orientations. The development followed the structure plan approved at plan variation stage and met the client’s objective to provide a variety of unit sizes within smaller blocks and an integrated landscape design.
