Ladies Mile Housing for the Elderly - Housing New Zealand Corporation

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — Ladies Mile Road, Ellerslie

Ladies Mile is an urban low rise residential complex housing the elderly for Housing New Zealand Corporation in Ellerslie Auckland.

The palette of materials is rigorously robust and monotone – providing a rich tapestry of textures and forms that are assembled to create a secure environment for living. Honed concrete blocks form a grid between units and panels of textured and smooth precast concrete alternate with wall to wall joinery to ensure privacy and individuality. The spectrum of colourful occupants brings life to the structure which ranges from deep black through to crisp white.
