puhinui : nuanced transition
a vision which encompasses perception and perspective through a sociological structure to influence the ecological predominance and design on the northern puhunui precinct.
visibility drew influence and placement for ecological edges. the combining of landscape and visual analysis provided poor and inefficient visual connections through the site that discouraged formational architectural growth; these areas deemed unsafe, uncertain and insecure for construction to occur in a structural and sociological direction. re-vegetation areas and buffered coastal edges. encouraged the rest of the growth and layout of the northern puhinui precinct.
circulate puhinuis northern precinct has a direct connection to aucklands airport sector on its western edge and southern auckland region through its eastern front. state highway 20B runs through the southern face of the site to provide a prompt access and circulative connection within its wider context. this connection provided influence to puhinuis subtle but distinct shift:
park estates was influenced by the encompassing of levelled field that provided direct visual access and connection anywhere through the site. land that had no distinct aspect provided their positioning, these lands were then aggregated to provide a linear linkage through and towards the constrained re-vegetation areas of the site. along with public spaces, the importance of public transport provided a sustained and transitional linkage with the sites wider extent. grided road formations help create faster linked and sustained transportation networks through the site and its wider context helping to provide a sufficient and reliable habitable ecosystem. walkable paths create desirable active zones and also have a 10min accessibility to attractive zoning locations. all these factors and elements help support and emphasize the northern puhinui precincts envisioned; a nuanced transition

a nuanced transition.
re-vegetation areas enforce a separation between more dense districts and less dense districts. these re-vegetation areas resolve as informal barriers and act to provide a more private communal space for the less dense districts.
