Boathouse Bay: A Model of Sustainable Community Living

Nestled in Snells Beach, north of Auckland, Boathouse Bay by Crosson Architects has earned the title of Home of the Year 2024, setting a benchmark for community-centric and environmentally conscious design. This development stands out as a seamless blend of architecture and landscape, aimed at fostering a sense of community among its residents.

Drawing inspiration from New Zealand's traditional baches, Crosson Architects have designed Boathouse Bay to embody the spirit of simplicity, nature, and togetherness. The project mirrors the essence of coastal living through its use of natural colors and materials, integrated community spaces, and pathways that encourage interaction and connection to the outdoors.

A highlight of Boathouse Bay's innovative approach is the incorporation of our Intertenancy Terraced Housing Systems, enhancing safety without compromising the development's aesthetic or environmental integrity. Our KOROK system is specifically designed for fire safety in terraced housing, featuring aluminium brackets that protect the structure in the event of a fire, demonstrating a commitment to durability and sustainability.

Boathouse Bay is more than a housing development; it's a testament to the possibilities of modern, community-focused living spaces that prioritize safety, sustainability, and social connectivity. As Home of the Year 2024, it serves as an inspiration for future projects aiming to blend community living with environmental consciousness.
