Coastal Spirit

Sonata Apartments Auckland, New Zealand

Sonata Apartments

Auckland, New Zealand


Sonata’s five exquisitely designed apartments overlook the prestigious St. Heliers Bay, Auckland.

The bold contemporary design maximises space, embraces a fresh coastal spirit and makes the most of radiant natural light. North facing, with a direct line to the bay, each of the five luxury apartments with private access, share spectacular views over the Waitemata Harbour, Rangitoto Island and across to the city.

An exterior of textured and polished concrete anchors Sonata’s fluid form, offset by dark zinc-coloured window and door frames, timber soffits and stone pavers.

This palette extends to Buchan-designed interiors, which exude warm, quiet luxury. Feature clouded white limestone plaster walls are complemented by timber floors and joinery, natural stone tiling and striking marble kitchens. Metallic accents and beautiful detailing combine to create a relaxed yet sophisticated ambience.
