Bernoulli Gardens by Ockham Residential consists of 120 apartments across five well appointed apartment buildings. At its official opening on Tuesday 4th September, words like ‘transformative’, ‘innovative’ and ‘contemporary’ were used to describe Hobsonville Point’s most recent development - and it’s not hard to see why.
A 1,200m2 landscaped garden sits at the heart of Bernoulli Gardens, interwoven with pathways and achieve a sense of interconnectedness and community. Ockham Residential co-founder Mark Todd explains that while the site has three times as many homes on it than the average site of this size, he and co-founder Ben Preston have retained "twice as much green space as similar projects – and all at two thirds of the price of the average new build in Auckland."
The façades are made from handmade German brick, and are curved around the edges, inspired by the classic London warehouse loft-style buildings whilst simultaneously paying tribute to the historic aircraft hangars and brick factories that are both features of Hobsonville Point’s history.
Hobsonville’s aviation history is also the development’s namesake. Daniel Bernoulli was an 18th century mathematician and physicist who discovered the Bernoulli equations which govern flight.
Of course, practicalities informed the design too. Ockham follow a ‘best practice housing’ protocol to construct homes from durable, low-maintenance materials that age well and improve the local environment.
Each home has a generous 2.7 metre stud, equipped with double glazing and concrete mid-floors. The apartments include LED lighting, heat pumps; and engineered stone bench tops, Smeg appliances and soft close drawers for the kitchen. The bathrooms feature porcelain floor and wall tiles, heated towel rails and New Zealand-made vanities.
Apartment sizes range from 55 square metres to 99 square metres, each with their own private balcony. Secure car parks, located underground to free up green space and other common areas, are available for purchase with all apartments. All owners get to enjoy a north-facing residents’ lounge that spills out over the central garden.
One bedroom apartments are priced from $525,000, two bedrooms from $650,000, and three bedrooms from $765,000.
For apartment viewings, head to the central gardens entrance from Sidney Wallingford Way, Hobsonville Point, every Sunday between 11 and 12pm, or call 09 378 8011 to make an appointment.
