Peddle Thorp are proud to be commissioned for the second consecutive venture by our client Residentiae to design Botanica Heritage Apartments.
From behind a timeless façade springs a unique ensemble of fourteen boutique residences, spread across two spacious levels. This extraordinary conversion of an existing heritage office building to a contemporary residential address blends the elegance of the past with the sophistication and beauty of modern architecture.
The insertion of a light well connects the first and second floor with a generous void, providing a clear visual connection and the opportunity to engage with the expansive volume of the original building. Materials have been negotiated to complement the existing fabric of the building whilst establishing a contemporary vigour; aluminium window joinery, exposed concrete, hardwood flooring and an exposed timber truss ceiling on level two combine to express the richness of the space.
Amalgamating the past and present, these exceptional homes offer rare, authentic character in a suburb renowned for its lifestyle, café culture and upmarket residential cachet. Located less than 4km from the CBD, Botanica Heritage revels in its warehouse proportions and historic charm offering grandeur and style seldom found in Auckland today.
