Zavos Corner is an apartment development located in the Wellington suburb of Mt Victoria, on the fringe of its city centre. The development maximises the number of units on a relatively small site, delivering livable, sunny and private living spaces for residents. Its unique design enhances the character of the local area and defines a prominent corner site.
The development is located on the site of a former pre-1935 villa, whose original form had been obscured by multiple renovations. Located less than 10 minutes from Wellington’s city centre, the site was considered a prime location for a medium-density development in a city seeking accommodation solutions for its projected population growth.
The development fits eight apartments, a total of 16 bedrooms, on a site formerly occupied by a single detached house. The design of the development playfully responds to its heritage context, with the building’s roofline and material choice paying homage to the older homes in the area.
