Luxury Living at Horizon Mission Bay, Auckland
Horizon Mission Bay is Location Group’s newest venture featuring a one-of-a-kind luxury 41-strong apartment building which is nestled into a hilltop, overlooking the Auckland city skyline and Hauraki Gulf.
Horizon has been designed to nestle into the hillside to maximise the expansive views of ocean, islands and greenery to the north connecting the city and beach with Mission Beach’s relaxed, leafy urban environment.
Featuring one, two and three bedroom apartments, as well as three penthouse options, the design incorporates open-plan living areas and large courtyard balconies to take advantage of natural light, ventilation and views.
Buchan Principal Rob Guild said apartments feature open-plan living areas and large courtyard balconies to take advantage of natural light, ventilation and views.
“A natural colour palette and timber flooring further emphasise Horizon’s relationship with the surrounding landscape. Heavy concrete blades on the exterior will respond to weather conditions, and change colour as the building matures and blends with the site.”
"Sunrooms have been introduced to the southern apartment balconies to extend living areas to the building’s edge. This increases the impact of daylight and inland views so residents can enjoy the space in comfort at all times."
Penthouses feature Gaggenau appliances, bespoke Italian porcelain benchtops, natural veneer and finger-printless cabinetry, wide-panel smoked oak flooring, three-car garaging and a storage unit.
A special emphasis had been given to the entrance design of Horizon, with a sunken floor and vertical bamboo gardens to feature, as well as three lift cores providing private access to all apartments.
Horizon Mission Bay is located at 250-254 Kepa Road, Mission Bay, Auckland City. Construction is expected to begin next year (2018).
