dc.description.abstractThis project proposes to address the issues related to residential, commercial and community living. Residential issues relate to a lack of diverse building types and a scale that discourages flexibility towards growth, affordability and sustainability. The scale of big commercial boxes has also created a visual imbalance with the suburban fabric. Finally, community-related issues, such as the lack of public places and sense of community, will be addressed. Sites: Henderson: Lincoln Road, Buscomb Ave, Triangle Road, Wadier Place, Corban Place and Edmonton Road. Glen Eden: Oates Road Te Atatu Peninsula: Gunner Drive New Lynn: Ambrico Place, Tuscany Towersen_NZ
