Hope you have a great day!!

Recently the new Auckland Unitary Plan has been announced.
This new plan enables more dense residential development across Auckland.


Residential Zoning Type


The sum of the rules of the plan is that the closer to a town centre the area is, the more dense residential development is allowed.

In the zoning map of South Auckland you see the town centre is indicated in purple color in the middle and the zoning type gradually changes as it goes further from the town centre.

Here is the zoning type.

Zoning Legend

You see the flow of the zoing type: Town centre→Terrace Housing&Apartment (the densest zoning)→Mixed Housing Urban (2nd densest)→Mixed Housing Suburban (3rd)→Single House (4th).

The zoning types are affected by access to main roads, railway station, etc.  but the physical distance to town centres is the critical parameter.

Town centre(中心街)→Terrace Housing&Apartment (最高住居密度)→Mixed Housing Urban (二番目に高密度)→Mixed Housing Suburban (三番目)→Single House (四番目)という流れが分かると思います。

Qualification: Degree of Architecture Studies and Graduate Diploma of Psychology (University Of Auckland) ; 2nd Grade Cad Technician (Japan)
Family: Extremely lovely wife, wonderfully kind mother in low, awesomely hardworking chickens, surprisingly lazy cat and unbelievably naughty dog.

I love architecture and design so much that I have been to so many buildings and places around the world such as Sydney Opera House in Sydney, CCTV building in Beijing, Empire State Building in New York, Royal Palace in Bangkok, Houryu-Ji in Nara, etc. However, the residential building attracts me the most. For nearly 10 years I have visited heaps of local and historical homes around New Zealand which I feel the builders’ great workmanship as well as occupants’ life.

From this experience my aim is to design and provide the comfortable and affordable houses with the spirit of Japanese workmanship that people enjoy and improve their quality of life.

In this blog I write my everyday experience of work to show what is a designer’s work and how it goes at Japan Homes.

Any comments or questions are very welcome.
