Smeg appliances chosen for contemporary new Rose Garden apartment development in Albany


Apartment living in Auckland has spread well beyond the confines of the inner city, with a number of new developments on the outskirts creating plenty of interest.

Rose Garden apartments in Albany is one such development. Situated on the picturesque shores of Albany Lakes, this project features a cluster of seven-storey buildings with a total of 200 units.

Architect Stephen Voyle of Context Architects says each building has its own defining character and architectural language. Together they wrap around the perimeter of the site, enveloping a central raised courtyard for the enjoyment of all the residents.

Apartments range from one to four bedrooms and all the interiors will be fitted out to a high standard of specification, with designer kitchens and bathrooms. Smeg appliances have been specified for all the kitchens.

NZ Rose Garden Ltd manager Robin Lee says Smeg fitted the design brief for good-quality products and materials.


"Smeg is a European brand that has been available in New Zealand for a long time. It has a very good reputation. We also appreciated the aesthetics – Smeg appliances have a contemporary look that fits with the apartment interiors."

The appliances include the Smeg 60cm ceramic cooktop, which has residual heat indicators and an automatic safety cut-off, and the Smeg built-under dishwasher. This can accommodate 14 place settings.

A wide range of cooking functions are provided in the Smeg 60cm stainless steel wall oven, including fan bake, fan grill and an eco function. The oven has a triple-glazed door that is safe to touch when the oven is in use.
