Dominion Residential overcame a complex build on a tricky site to replace a 1970s homestead with these three inner-city apartments

Private inner-city apartments maximise interior space and garden and harbour views


Generous living spaces and a sense of escape are two coveted advantages when looking to buy in the inner city. A strategic use of site and clever design – all brought together by an experienced constructor – has achieved these lifestyle features in three new apartments in the heart of Auckland.

Dominion Residential provided a high level of expertise on what could have been a difficult build for a less experienced crew, says Dominion's construction director on the job Kevin Boroevich.

"This was a complex build, made more so by the site's location on a narrow lane. There was lots of earth-moving and retaining wall construction required, all made trickier by the narrow access."

However, when it comes to prospective owners, the narrow lane is a blessing in disguise as it ensures all three units offer great private views.

"The sunny apartments are solidly constructed with a long-run steel roof, masonry and concrete base and a structural steel frame with a light timber construction," says Boroevich.


Palazzo Kitchens provided the refined kitchen cabinetry teamed with contemporary De'Longhi 8-function wall ovens and induction hobs.

The sunny, private decks are a major feature of the units. Commercial-style aluminium joinery creates floor-to-ceiling doors and windows that open up the decks to the living areas and bedrooms. The latter also feature large walk-in wardrobes, while Feltex carpets feature in most private spaces.

"The spacious decks are also served by Louvretec operable louvres that, along with the Escea gas fires, make the homes' outdoor spaces welcoming year round," says Boroevich. "Glass balustrading was used for the stairs and decks, providing an uninterrupted visual flow and further enhancing the light and airy sense of space."

In the industry for many years, Dominion Residential offers solutions across the entire residential market.
