Standing 187 metres high, Seascape is a dynamic collaboration between developers, Shundi and architects, Peddle Thorp. Located on the edge of Britomart at 83 Customs Street East in the Auckland CBD, Seascape occupies a full city block and is bounded by Custom Street East, Gore Street, Gore Street Lane and Fort Street.
The glass tower contains 221 apartments including 15 penthouses and sub-penthouses and sits upon a seven storey mixed-use podium which has retail, commercial tenancies and residents’ amenities. Seascape is a landmark building in every sense; a bold, iconic design on a prominent central city site that will deliver new levels of luxury and glamour to downtown Auckland.
Construction has already begun so you can buy with confidence knowing that you are investing in a world-class development by a well-funded international developer.
Seascape’s interior design exudes luxury and sophistication. Every residence has the same high specification and north-facing aspect, each designed to maximise the light and views available throughout the apartment. Seascape has been thoughtfully designed so every apartment faces north, with the core and services located at the rear of the building and the megabrace structure on the eastern and western facades. This efficient design allows for floor-to-ceiling glass along the entire exterior face of each apartment to maximise the views and natural light. The lower levels enjoy vibrant urban views of Britomart while the upper apartments boast some of the best views in Auckland of the Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf beyond.
Featuring a luxurious combination of natural-look timber panelling and designer wall coverings, the apartments in Seascape have an exceptional level of design and attention to detail throughout. This design is utilised to great effect in integrated wardrobes and headboards in the master bedroom, and a feature wall in the open plan living. Recessed LED strip lighting and sleek air-conditioning vents create a high-tech look to the ceiling.
Peddle Thorp have designed a dynamic living experience that allows residents in every apartment type to enjoy outdoor space even on the windiest of days. With internal sliding joinery and a level transition, these ‘winter gardens’ function as both a generous enclosable balcony or an extension to the open plan living. At every turn, the apartments at Seascape deliver a luxurious living experience worthy of the amazing location.
The kitchens at Seascape have a contemporary design with refined detailing and a minimal palette of luxury materials. The combination of feature timber framing, island bench, and gloss white cabinetry with integrated appliances creates a sleek, modern look.
The rainwater shower, wall-mounted designer tapware, underfloor heating and level-entry shower create a subtle touch of luxury to the bathrooms while the bespoke vanity with large drawer and mirror cabinet provide functional storage.
The Studio Apartment has a highly efficient layout and the same high quality interior design as the other apartments in Seascape. Unlike typical studio designs, these apartments feature a full-sized kitchen with island bench and built-in cabinetry in the living and bedroom zones. The plan has the bed located beside the enclosable balcony which makes the incredible views available throughout the apartment.
ONE BEDROOM + STUDY
It has many features normally found in much larger apartments and located one unit in from the sides of the building. Like every apartment in Seascape, they face north and have a large enclosable balcony running across the full width of the unit. These are generous one bedroom apartments with an open plan living space that runs the full depth of the apartment, a full-sized kitchen with island, a powder room, and a study or media room in the back of the apartment. The master bedroom which has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite – is located off the balcony, so you can wake up to views of the city and sparkling harbour beyond.
TWO BEDROOM DUPLEX
One of the standout offerings in this amazing building: a two-storey unit with double-height atrium. This is a design of international quality, rarely found in the New Zealand market. Situated in the middle of the building floor plan, it has been designed to flood the apartment with light and frame the spectacular views from every room. The lower level has a study, bathroom, laundry and large open plan living that opens onto the outdoor atrium and an unenclosed balcony that runs across the front of the apartment. The atrium can be closed off from the elements with large sliders, and functions as a magnificent dining room or as an all-seasons ‘winter garden’. Stairs lead up to a landing which access a bedroom with ensuite and the master suite with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. The bedroom has a balcony which opens into the atrium, while the master bedroom has an open-air balcony.
Located on the eastern and western edges of the building and feature floor-to-ceiling glazing around three faces. These stunning corner units include wrap-around views, an entertainer’s kitchen and spacious open plan living with internal joinery that slides across the entire width of the apartment. The master suite is at the southern end of the apartment and includes a generous walk-in wardrobe and ensuite, both with floor-to-ceiling glazing on the exterior wall. The master bed has a feature headboard and is surrounded by spectacular city views from the glazed corner. With a feature entry and a separate laundry, the Type A apartments deliver a luxurious living experience and subtle grandeur usually found in much-larger homes.
Occupying the top eleven occupiable floors in Seascape. There are two Sub-Penthouses per floor while the Penthouses each cover an entire floor. These ultra-premium residences feature substantial open plan living, extensive enclosable balconies, grand entries, and multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. They have the highest quality materials, fittings and appliances, and a luxurious interior design that marks them as some of the most exclusive homes in the country. The kitchens are perfect for entertaining with large marble islands, gas hobs and double sinks, while the ensuites – which feature a freestanding bath and double vanity – are the ideal place to unwind at the end of the day. More than any other feature, it is the breath-taking panoramic views that make these residences so magnificent. Located over 130m high, with floor-to-ceiling glass and just one block back from the Waitemata Harbour, the penthouses have views that stretch from the CBD and Auckland Harbour Bridge, past the North Shore and Rangitoto, around to the eastern suburbs and Hobson Bay. It is a magnificent vista that no photo could ever do justice.
