Classic Kiwi Corrugate Featured in Winning Multi Unit Of The Year 2022
The 9-5 workweek is officially outdated as more and more Kiwis embrace a lifestyle that encourages working remotely.
Naturally, this shift in how we work has changed many Kiwis’, particularly young working professionals, ideologies of a place to call home. These ideologies include the benefits of living in the city, having a strong sense of community, and the ability to elude the hustle and bustle of the busy city life.
Architectus, an architecture and urbanism practice, believes that architecture begins with a social agenda that nurtures and grows both communities and individuals, further enhancing the areas they live in. Architectus’ forward-thinking approach has seen their most recent development, based in Christchurch’s inner city, One Central Bedford Terraces and Apartments, win the 2022 Multi-Unit Home of the Year, and Dimond® Roofing is a key supplier to this residential precinct.
The Bedford Terraces and Apartments of One Central’s facades and roofing boast of Dimond Corrugate Zinacore .55 in the colour Slate, paying homage to both the site’s industrial heritage and the surviving architecture. Corrugate was chosen for its classic style and ability to be used as roofing and cladding, creating an aesthetically, pleasing, seamless design throughout Bedford Terraces and Apartments.
Certified as 6 Homestar Built Rating and designed to Lifemark 3 standards, One Central’s Bedford Terraces and Apartments consists of 94, one-, two- and three-bedroom units offering a variety of homes to attract a diverse mix of people and cultures. Centred around two private inner-city courtyards and a laneway, One Central encourages a socially engaging, vibrant, communal space, allowing residents to enjoy the best of both worlds as they’re sheltered from the noise of the city but walking distance to all the city has to offer.
The award-winning Multi-Unit Home of the Year, One Central is undoubtedly the new beating heart of inner-city Christchurch, and Dimond® Roofing is proud to have been a part of it.
