Design

A new urban village

Selo swash

Treating their role as stewards to this beloved piece of land, the enlightened team behind Selo have worked closely with Auckland Council to create a people-centred development that will sit seamlessly within its leafy environs and the wider community.

This 'micro neighbourhood' is laid out in small groups of terraces, creating attractive, people-friendly streets, with generous spaces carved out for communal life and the natural environment.

 

Well-considered architecture

The team from BDG Architects have conceived an architectural design for Selo where no two groups of terraces are the same, giving plenty of individuality to the neighbourhood. The distinctiveness of these homes is balanced with consistent architectural detailing, lending a rhythmic harmony across the whole development.

Strings of pitched roofs and the varying scales of the terraces combine with a blend of no less than seven complementary palettes of brick and painted weatherboard profile to provide contrast across the adjoining facades of the individual townhouses.

So meticulous in the details, BDG went as far as to commission a custom paint colour from Dulux to get just the right shade of cinnamon brown to perfectly complement the brickwork. Finer architectural flourishes, such as projecting window reveals and contrast detailing, combine with quality materials and thoughtful landscaping to deliver unique townhouses that residents will be proud to call home.
