Wynyard Central East 2
Wynyard Central East 2, Architectus
In a bold and confident response to a unique opportunity, the architects have produced a sophisticated tripartite multi-unit housing project without local precedent. The prioritising of architectural quality and amenity has benefitted the inhabitants of the Wynyard Central East 2 complex while enhancing the public realm of the neighbourhood. The apartment terraces are atypically generous, and the inclusion of mews houses is a welcome surprise; on a highly visible site, privacy is well handled, as is ventilation in all dwellings. The successful juxtaposition, around several laneways, and clear articulation of the various forms – pavilions, mews and apartment building – and the rich materiality of the project set a high standard for the development of Wynyard Quarter.
