A location to live for
The Peninsula sits on a site with a long history, something many locals will be able to attest to. This development has been a long time coming, 10 years in fact! We’ve been through many different iterations but think the process has been worth it as it has lead, finally, to this.
But Orakei Bay Village and The Peninsula are only the beginning. The medium-term plan is to rebuild the balance of the site into a new mixed-use project. This will require a team of our consultants working with Auckland Council and a further round of consultation with the community. So how do we do this? Orakei Bay Village and The Peninsula are set on two hectares of premium waterfront land, with sweeping views of the basin and the sparkling Auckland skyline. Adjacent is a railway station that whisks passengers from OBV to the CBD in just one stop. We are also part of the exclusive suburb of Remuera. We don’t mean to brag, but being this desirable comes at a price, in more ways than one!
There are many interested parties that are passionate about the preciousness of this site and every party has, quite rightly, put considerable pressure on us to do what they think is the right thing. As it turns out the ‘right thing’ means a lot of different things to community members, consultants, council, urban design experts and local iwi. We see the developer’s role as something of a conductor, listening to different views and orchestrating ideas in order to create something of value and beauty that meets the demands of those who will ultimately live here. As you can imagine, this process takes a great deal of time, sensitivity and creativity – all this while making sure the final design is financially viable.
At Equinox we drive our architects, urban designers, landscape architects and even engineers to design over and over again to make sure that we deliver apartments and retail areas that will stand up to scrutiny and engender pride in all of us. Like a lot of Kiwis, the team at Equinox and our consultants love to travel but we love coming back home again too, taking the good and the great things that we have seen and experienced globally, to use as inspiration. So it will be with the next stage of Orakei Bay Village – interesting places and concepts, affecting and cherished memories, will be used as briefing tools to the designers.
Architect Brent Hulena has worked on some very big and historically sensitive developments in his career, but none are as big or as sensitive as The Peninsula at Orakei Bay Village, and he is excited by both the opportunity and the challenge.
The geography of the site under Hulena’s stewardship will dictate the materials and colour palette to be used: basalt to recognize the volcanic elements, double- glazed glass to maximize views and minimize weather and noise, and wood as a complement to the harder materials used. There will be a big emphasis on a native planting scheme – as important as the buildings themselves – to allow the buildings to sit into their landscape in a more organic way.
Hulena’s homes are scattered throughout Aucklands most desirable suburbs, their contemporary appeal sitting perfectly within their often stunning surroundings.
