of the Year 2022:
Bedford Terraces & Apartments
Bedford Terraces & Apartments was a winner in the multi-unit category at this year’s Home of the Year awards programme, which celebrates New Zealand’s best residential architectural.
An urban community within the One Central redevelopment in Christchurch’s East Frame, Bedford Terraces & Apartments is located at the corner of Madras and Lichfield Streets, creating a precinct centered around two private inner-city courtyards and a laneway. These provide a pedestrian and people-focused amenity and look to support a strong sense of community, connectivity and safe environment for engagement between residents. Certified as 6 Homestar and designed to Lifemark 3 standards, the new homes offer environmentally and socially sustainable housing for people of all ages and stages in life. The development delivers a truly vibrant, connected and community-focused residential urban neighbourhood.
Principal, Carsten Auer says of the Bedford development “Inner city living, in our view, needs to prioritise people and community spaces ahead of cars. We believe, that this is one of the key contributions this development has made to the rebuilding of the inner city of Christchurch.”
Our congratulations to client and developer, Fletcher Living, our consultant partners and design team on this award recognition.
