The aim of this proposal, is to develop a building design for an internationally acclaimed photographer and a local architect, to ‘live and work’ within a service lane located in Auckland CBD. The project focuses on the transformation of a rundown service lane into an aesthetically pleasing, functional and livable infill; dealing with site confines and restraints, shapes the development into a ‘form that works’. Research has helped to develop spatial arrangements and structural tectonics, producing exciting new living arrangements and providing inhabitants with an opportunity to recognise and appreciate how the space they inhabit, is constructed. The project covers the architectural question and outline, site analysis, the design process and final design proposal.
