Design Outcome

​​The spaces around the home are as important to the functioning of a house as the building itself.​

​People expect to be able to enjoy the outside environment from within the confines of their property. Well-designed outdoor spaces provide value and enjoyment for their ​occupants and contribute to the wider amenity of a neighbourhood.

As Auckland intensifies and sites get smaller, the quality of outdoor spaces becomes more important. Thoughtful design is necessary to deliver spaces that are usable and add value to your development.

This section provides guidance on creating functional​, quality outdoor spaces around the building.​
