Live Long & Prosper @ The Vulcan
|Address:||401/6 Dock Street, Auckland City, Auckland|
|Category:||Apartment - City Location|
TAKING INSPIRATION FROM THE METAL FOUNDRY THE SITE WAS PREVIOUSLY USED FOR, THE VULCAN IS A SOPHISTICATED PIECE OF DESIGN CRAFTED BY RENOWNED ARCHITECTS LEUSCHKE GROUP.
Bronze detailing is used throughout the building and the facade is an experimentation in reflectivity. Its clean lineal structure is broken by a bold bronze frame, creating a building with elegant height and eye-catching form. The Vulcan is designed to stand apart.
Residences have generous indoor and outdoor living areas, and have either park or city views. The apartments sit upon a commercial podium, grounding the building to the street front, while upper floors open out to emphasise the views of the city and the harbour.
SPLIT INTO TWO RESIDENTIAL TOWERS, THE DESIGN PLAYS WITH SCALE – BETWEEN THE OVERALL SIZE OF THE BUILDING AND THE FINE DETAIL WITHIN THE GLASS FRIT.
Floor to ceiling joinery and bespoke glass balustrades pay homage to the spectacular views. The terraces run the full-width of each residence, and boast flush joinery for seamless indoor-outdoor flow.
The interiors are sleek and edgy, juxtaposing glossy and textured materials. Timber floors, concrete-look tiles and matte black kitchen cabinetry complete the sensuous, urban look.
