SKHY Apartments, Auckland
About the Project
Repurposing of an existing office tower block into high-end apartments, plus associated site works.
SKHY Apartments is a repurposed building converted from the former Winstone Tower office block at the top of Khyber Pass in Newton, into a 12 storey, luxury apartment complex. Situated within minutes of the CBD and the city-fringe suburbs, this 1970’s building is set on one of the highest vantage points in Auckland affording some of the harbour city’s best-protected views.
The adaptive transformation of SKHY celebrates the concrete mass of the original, solidly-built historic building, whilst increasing its amazing views through the installation of huge, sheltered outdoor living spaces and high-performance floor-to-ceiling windows.
