AUCKLAND // NEW ZEALAND
Client: Redwood Group
At the northern base of one of Auckland’s many volcanoes, Eden 5 is a continuation of a successful medium density business and residential community development. Many flexible office planning options were pursued for specific tenants including the Ministry of Education. The proposed building facade fronts up to the street and encloses a private open courtyard, shielding it from the cold winds from the South. Large open simple floor plates connect to the existing atrium passage between the main street and urban courtyard. Lifts provide vertical connection between floors to the entry and basement parking which continues below and connects into the main parking for the whole business community. The offices look out over the main street East over school hockey grounds and South to Mount Eden.
