Architecture and design
Beaumont Quarter is a 258-unit residential project in central Auckland, designed for inhabitants who want to move back to the city centre, without relying on the regular use of cars. In a country that is known for building only high-rise or low-rise, Beaumont Quarter has been recognised as a benchmark project for medium-density development, introducing a European design that gives priority to pedestrians with a dense network of pedestrian pathways and small squares.
The award-winning design is exceptional in both concept and execution. The complex is comprised of a series of unique buildings, each with an independent yet complimentary aesthetic, brought together with pedestrian friendly walkways and shared spaces. All homes are well-equipped with high-quality, contemporary fittings and furnishings and have a focus on spacious living areas. Building height has been regulated to maximize natural light. And many homes have their own outdoor areas like courtyards, rooftop patios or decks – some with stunning views of the city. Trees, gardens and green spaces make BQ a relaxing and refreshing place to come home to.
Studio Pacific Architecture developed the masterplan, and was also the architect Stage 1. S333 was commissioned to design Stage 2 and the Sydney-based architect Ian Moore designed Stage 3.
