Chic inner-city apartments with designer appliances


With apartment blocks going up all the time it can take something different to really stand out.

Block 7 is a reworking of an historic central Auckland building into a New York loft-style apartment project inspired by the Art Deco period, says project director Craig Johnson of Robert Fisher & Associates.

"Respected architect Paul Brown has taken a 1925 iconic building and reinvented it while retaining all its character period charm.

"The eight-level freehold residential project features 28 intelligently designed units in a range of sizes and shapes, with just four on each floor – many with their own private balconies."

The first four floors behind the original facade have been rebuilt in concrete, glass, and steel framing – all featuring high-stud ceilings. Block 7's top three floors are the new addition, also with airy, modern, character-filled spaces.


"Centrally situated in Anzac Ave, the units are ideal for those who want a refined lifestyle at a landmark inner-city address," says Johnson.

The fixtures and appliances at Block 7 match the calibre of the development. Italian fashion appliance brand Eisno supplied the high-tech appliances, all boasting the latest aesthetics and advanced time- and labour-saving functionality. Eisno business development manager Emma Ren says all models at Block 7 offer ease of use and appeal to a range of tastes.
