Redevelopment of 7 existing residential townhouses at 22 Balfour Rd, Parnell, situated on a 1,332 Sq.m site. Current development is two floors in scale.
The site drops away from Balfour Rd down to the lower site towards Kenwyn St., dropping some 15M in height. The townhouses were constructed in 1991 atop a concrete floor slab supported by an extensive structural steel support frame under.
The brief was to redevelop, extend and modernise the amenity of each townhouse. Each is extended at the front and rear with new extensive decking. A new basement floor added under the ground floor utilising the existing steel support structure. This provides much needed additional floor area. A new steel structural frame was added to the west to support the floors and decking extension to the west, facing the city to maximise the expansive views and increase usable floor area.
JCY worked with the clients and planners to achieve a very complex Resource Consent based on mass and height in relation to boundary controls on all sides.
The townhouses are clad in a refined palate of materials. The proposed redevelopment will provide increased amenity for all owners. Building consent was attained and works started on site in early 2017. Project due for completion late 2018.
