Devore St Apartments

Auckland, New Zealand


Sonata’s five exquisitely designed apartments, each with private access are located on the a prestigious hillside location St. Heliers.

The striking 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, Sonata performs a symphony of spectacular views in a wide arc that encompasses the city, harbour and Rangitoto Island.

The monochrome palette gives a cool impression, an extension of the Architecture. The selection of natural materials, derived from plants, animals and the earth – stone, timber, fibres and minerals produce a considered quality and design intent. The sober interior material palette is characterised by clouded white limestone walls, beautifully detailed natural stone and warm aged darkened timbers.

The thought out combination of location, view and materials each play to its strength working together with the natural landscape to tell the Architectural story.
