Information from ASSIST Architects Apr 07:

Assist Architects have recently completed a 37-unit development of sustainable houses and flats for rent for Dunedin Housing Canmore Association. The design features biodiversity enhancing Sedum roofs and Siberian untreated Larch cladding.

The sedum fulfils two roles, minimising the impact of the development on the immediate landscape but also reducing rainwater runoff as part of a sustainable urban drainage initiative. The Siberian Larch heartwood product, supplied by Russwood, was chosen over home grown Larch because the colder climate in Siberia produces a much denser wood, rich in lignum and resin to give it excellent durability and resistance. The timber will weather to a silvery grey colour with no anticipated maintenance requirements.

The project was achieved through detailed local authority consultation, community consultation and tenant participation, with the Design Team, including Hart Builders, working together under a partnering agreement to be continued for future phases.
