Supporting Auckland Council’s urban design vision, Chow:Hill’s concept for Kingsland’s newest boutique apartment and retail development creates a feeling of home in an evolving and energetic neighbourhood.

A collection of high quality, beautiful living spaces that speaks to the diverse range of residents in the Kingsland neighbourhood was the brief presented to Chow:Hill for the design of Auckland’s newest boutique apartment development.

Designed to be set apart from neighbouring residences, The Electric captures the essence of this eclectic suburb, and embraces the area’s heritage and modernity while introducing a ‘Live Differently’ concept.

Proudly unconventional, the 33 apartment building has been designed with entertaining in mind, boasting private sun-soaked terraces and spectacular views which provide a refreshing retreat from city fringe living.

The architectural language of the building has taken clues from Chow:Hill’s observations of bold, high profile, multi-residential developments around Sydney’s foreshore. The result is a design that simultaneously feels like home yet stands out in a constantly evolving and energetic neighbourhood.

The Electric’s apartments face west towards the Waitakere ranges and include a green courtyard area, water feature and Japanese inspired zen garden to complement the raw and refined materials that speak to the historic streetscapes Kingsland is known for.

Multi-floor plan options include contemporary interiors and bespoke kitchens with integrated appliances.

The L-shaped building has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate greenspace and beautiful outlooks in every direction. Unique features include green walls and floor to ceiling glass bifold and/or sliding doors to allow a seamless interchange between sunroom or outdoor living.

Chow:Hill’s Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau studio is working in collaboration with Lincoln Properties to create this residential apartment offering which is set to electrify Kingsland, while remaining true to the heritage spirit of the neighbourhood.
