Vinegar Lane Dog Run

Mixed-Use Townhouse

Practice : GPA

Location : Ponsonby, Auckland

Status : Concept

Vinegar Lane, in Ponsonby, Auckland is envisioned as an urban village: a collection of terrace houses, arranged around a laneway, with both residential and commercial opportunities. At 5.5 metres wide the building site is a narrow slice of land that will accommodate a townhouse-type single residence of four stories with a ground-floor office. In order to maximise space, the roof garden becomes an essential outdoor living area with a fireplace and, yes, even a dog run, providing entertainment for people and pup. Double-height voids and light wells create high, light-filled interiors; carefully positioned louvre windows define private views in a dense environment. On the exterior, the façade is a ribbon that snakes up the building face through scalloped concrete panels.
