On an unassuming site in Pukekohe, a new mixed use complex is proposed to cater to increased demand for variety of living through quality apartment style residences, with the provision for commercial opportunities on the ground floor, which create a sustainable active street edge.
Comprising an array of six luxurious apartments, an office zone, two communal alfresco courtyards and retail and hospitality spaces across three floors - the development presents an innovative way forward, to address the utilising of maximum floor space, within Unitary Plan planning rules throughout the Pukekohe central area, while still achieving a comfortable standard of living for its occupants.
The Entwine Apartments will be one of the first mixed use buildings in Pukekohe to utilise tilt slab construction, which - with generous glazing and lush landscaping - seamlessly integrate the building into its surrounds. Criss-cross privacy screening details to the façade, give this building a unique modern quality and a landmark presence in its own right.
