Greenwood Associates worked with Construkt Architects to deliver a residential complex that offers unique apartments at the forefront of contemporary green living in Takapuna. Our design for the landscape includes native planting, fruit trees, edible gardens, entrance water features, solar heated pool and shared outdoor entertainment complex. Summer Gardens is registered with the Green Building Council to achieve a 6 Homestar rating. The building uses active and passive solutions of environmental responsibility, such as louvres and operable sunscreens. Solar panels generate sufficient power for the penthouse and pool and supplement energy for the building’s hot water heating system.
