221 Ponsonby Road Apartments and Retail
RCC embarked on constructing an excellent small scale mixed use development where the commercial and retail space below adds to the unique Ponsonby street appeal, all the while providing residents above a degree of privacy and protection.
The use of artisan screens achieved this as did the layout of the apartments, utilising views above the urban ridge to express a feeling of uncompromised openness. Generous living zones utilising precast concrete, GIB wall systems and APL window systems through local suppliers adds to the expression of the building.
The street front's appeal, nestled into the Ponsonby landscape, gently and discreetly peels away, highlighting an exemplary junction between private and public zones.
