SOPHISTICATED – STYLISH – SOLID
With Federal Construction now at the helm, SOMA Apartments delivers a boutique-sized, sophisticated addition to the urban landscape at 10 Mackelvie Street.
These apartments have thrown out the rulebook of Auckland apartment design, combining functional, yet generous living spaces with thoughtful architecture and cutting edge design.
In an enviable location on Ponsonby's doorstep, SOMA is designed to make apartment living really about living. Unique layout features add flexibility and maximise the space to give you room to move, allowing you to use it how it best works for you, so you can switch from cosy nest to party pad on a whim.
Careful and creative design has introduced a high level of functionality to make living uncluttered, showcasing the high end finishes and design details that will delight at every turn. Dual aspect outdoor living delivers magnificent views over Grey Lynn and Waitemata Upper Harbour and floods the apartments with light and warmth.
SOMA will be no shrinking violet. Tasteful and timeless design statements, both inside and out, will make this a landmark building in an area experiencing a rejuvenation and will set the standard for urban development on the Ponsonby fringes.
SOMA missed the memo that apartments should be a boring white box.
Instead, SOMA introduces the concept of a “jewellery box”, a central core of each apartment, subtly lit from within to create a uniqueness and warmth to the interiors, with this light softly permeating into the living space.
A “living wall”, which houses the kitchen, laundry and storage, has been carefully designed and crafted. This allows apartments to open from front to back provides truely open space not often seen in modern apartments, with open vistas from front to back across the entire living level for views and maximum natural light, enhanced by the light colour palette.
Oak, wide board timber flooring is used throughout the living and breakout study and reading spaces, while timber decking continues onto the outdoor spaces which ensures seamless indoor/outdoor living. Generous decks function as outdoor rooms with dedicated external screened storage lockers that provide safe, secure and screen extra storage; always an essential with apartment living.
