Warren and Mahoney Design a Lovely 12-Home Community in Christchurch, New Zealand

By • May 2, 2017

This community consists of 12 units of single family houses that share the same garden area, each one with its own terrace, which allows them to be integrated and yet preserve their own individual privacy. Located in Christchurch, New Zealand, the complex was designed by the architectural firm Warren and Mahoney in 2015. It covers an area of 1,220 square meters, which not only includes the houses, but also a beautiful internal garden.

The center courtyard makes it easy for residents to walk from one house to another, which facilitates the interaction between neighbors.

In its exterior, beautiful wooden walls with supports in black steel give form to the structure.

The interior, with white walls and carpeted floors, is bathed in light as it penetrates through the skylight located on the high ceiling of the room, giving it clarity and creating a sense of space.

The kitchen, with beautiful wooden floors, has the necessary space to allow us to feel comfortable while in it. With white countertops in combination with wooden cabinets, it connects to the living room with its open space and integrates it in a subtle way.

In the evening, the back garden of the community becomes a perfect space to meet friends and neighbors and share a pleasant time in their company.
