Creating a sense of community with strong public amenity links
Boffa Miskell has been involved in the development of Carlaw Park since the initial project inception and master planning stage. The team has provided expertise during the resource consent phase, master planning, concept design, detailed landscape design, material selection and specification, and has overseen construction throughout all stages.
The student accommodation precinct exemplifies how employing urban design principles from a project’s inception can lead to a more consistent and interconnected final solution.
Technical Leader Design, Rachel de Lambert says of the project, “It was vital to create strong links between buildings and open spaces, and to provide easy connections to the Auckland Domain, across to the University and city as well as to public transport, including the proposed Parnell rail station.
“The Carlaw Park Student Village is the latest part of the development to be completed. The high-density apartments sit within a new urban landscape that provides for the social and community activities of the residents. It has a strong community focus – the site offers a range of public, semi-public and private areas that are both social spaces and key circulation routes.”
