dc.description.abstractRESEARCH QUESTION: How can we reuse what is already on-site in neglected areas of Auckland City to assist in resolving the current housing shortage, and at the same time help to preserve the city’s past? AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this explanatory document is to demonstrate an alternative to the ‘clean slate’ approach when dealing with the rapidly increasing population of Auckland City. It aims to contribute to solving the current housing crisis, while utilising the principles of adaptive re-use to deal with what already occupies the site. This aims to preserve the building and the site’s history. It also aims to develop the remainder of the site as a housing complex which is designed to provide for a healthy and pleasant lifestyle. The new housing complex is to assist in resolving the current housing crisis of the city and to serve as an example of ‘higher density housing’ in Auckland. This high-density complex will aim to provide diversity in size and form in order to suit a wide range of the city’s population; families, young couples and first time home buyers. Finally, the dwellings are to be; flexible, functional and consist of features that Aucklanders value in a home such as; privacy, identity, uniqueness and individuality.
