The Kingsview comprises 11 bespoke apartments each with their own unique layout and amenity. Less an apartment building than a collection of 11 individual homes, the Kingsview combines the luxury and individuality of a stand alone homes with the convenience and security of an apartment.
The sought after site benefits from its location on the North-Western slopes of the Mt Eden Rd ridgeline, with the Apartments orientated to maximise sunlight, and the amazing views North toward Maungawhau/Mt Eden and West over the leafy suburb toward the Waitakare Rangers. Large outdoor balconies line the Western façade which experience beautiful evening sunsets and provide the opportunity for outdoor dining. The building is designed around a central courtyard providing a private oasis and unique experience from the street to front door. A private resident’s lounge opens onto the courtyard offering a flexible space for social events and entertaining.
The Architecture speaks to the rich materially and detail of the surrounding Mt Eden homes and landscaping. Local volcanic basalt stone is used to ground the building and landscaping, with a white textured plaster over an expressed concrete frame to provide a strong identity and define the prominent corner site location. The use of expansive glazed façade maximises views out and light in, with bronze operable screens adding a layer of depth and texture whilst providing the Apartments with privacy and shading.
The interiors consist of a refined material palette, designed to create a light and contemporary feel. Warm timber flooring and cabinetry provide a rich textured aesthetic, complemented by organic bronze fixtures & fittings. Light durable stone kitchen islands provide sculptured elements within the living spaces, contrasted by dark contemporary light fittings & joinery, adding to the restrained and elegant aesthetic. The interior spaces are generous in size and provide the canvas for owners to personalize with art and object.
