Hidden away, you'll love what we have discovered here … contemporary architecture that is on point. Apartment-Y is a generously proportioned two-bedroom abode with 2 ensuites, 2 living areas, an office nook, plus almost unheard of for apartment living - a spacious 2 car garaging (7.6m x 7.6m plus high stud). 

Nestled away in a multi-award winning boutique complex of just 3, these set an exemplar for inner city housing. 

When Pam & Stuart decided to retire into the CBD, they had strong individual views, and both concurred that they wanted a bold, but simple & contemporary design. The owners entrusted Adam Mercer (Mercer & Mercer Architects) to collaborate with their long-standing love affair of good design, and to challenge the perception of urban living.  Having grown up immersed in his father Dick Mercer's Hamilton practice, it was only natural that Adam would deliver a strong building touchingly evocative of his father's earlier works in its use of materials - masonry construction, raw concrete block, black joinery and minimal fuss, creating an extremely spacious inner city retreat (approx. 230m2 ) ideal for those downsizers looking for a lock up and leave pad but aren't ready to be squashed into the smaller options on offer, or young professionals with an eye for design and a desire to be within easy walking distance to the city centre, restaurants, the lake... and the Hospital is a short walk, or e-scooter ride for medical professionals. 

With over 26,000 blocks used in the project build, these apartments were designed to be strong and quiet, warm in winter, and cool in summer, a great testimony to good architectural design and the thermal mass capabilities of masonry construction. The overly generous garage offers storage opportunities galore, so in this case one does not necessarily have to discard all of life's treasures and toys to lead a harmonious central city lifestyle.

Built to worship full day sun, the north facing aspect allows an abundance of natural light to flood the open plan layout throughout the day and as the sun sets the city lights come to life creating a cosmopolitan feel.

NZIA Awards judges citation sums it up "the building is both strong and gentle, protective and open, and emanates a serene peacefulness that makes it a wonderful place to live".

And this from the owners - 

"Architecture is the highest form of art, you live with it around you every day"

So urban living needn't mean compromising style and design for bland cookie-cutter options, come and discover this totally unique offering.

After having enjoyed 18 years of 'retirement' living here, it's time for the final move to the coast, leaving behind a fantastic opportunity for someone to secure this truly special home.
