BUPA Parkstone

Related Systems: Ultratherm MSR
Architect: McKenzie Higham Architects
Project Date: November 2019
Location: Upper Hutt

BUPA Parkstone is a significant addition to retirement housing in Upper Hutt on a high profile site located on the city’s main street.  This large building is articulated to convey a recognisable residential narrative with forms and materials that are inherently domestic. One and two bedroom apartments open on to sunny balconies with great views over the northern Hutt Valley. A sense of community is built around spacious dining and social spaces that open to a generous enclosed landscaped courtyard.

Quality and sustainability were core principles in the design of the apartments and shared areas, resulting in the development being awarded a Homestar 6-Star accreditation.
