Abstract
Under the process of urbanisation, more people settled in cities. This increasing population, along with demographic changes and purchase for investment, has broken the housing supply and demand balance. Meanwhile, without a fully established development regulation, the city has been out of control during recent decades. At this stage, policy makers and developers want to achieve higher density through making land sections smaller, which will lead to inhabitants losing privacy. This project creates a living community development in a suburban area which will achieve higher density numbers and better living conditions compared with a traditional suburban living environment. Architecturally designed, medium high rise apartment buildings sitting on the site, engaged with landscaped, public open space will build a model for future living community development. Local climatic conditions have been considered in the design process, helping to improve the quality of living in increased density situations. Project site: Te Atatu Road, Te Atatu Peninsula, Auckland.
