Sunset West Apartments

251 Victoria Street, Wellington
Completion Date: August 2021
New build Apartment Building
Architect: Design Group Elliot Stapleton

Near the heart of Wellington’s vibrant Cuba Quarter, the Sunset West Apartments development comprises 64 well-appointed and highly specified apartments.
Commenced on site in October 2019, this was Aoraki’s first major large project. The structure, designed by New Zealand Consulting Engineers is an innovative pad and ground beam foundation with fully structural steel and metal deck composite suspended concrete floor slabs, providing a resilient structure to house the apartments.

The sleek, award winning architecture (Housing – Multi Unit, in the New Zealand Institute of Architects 2022 Wellington Architecture Awards) was designed by Design Group Stapleton Elliot’s Wellington Office with Nigel Dong and Chris Gilby leading the charge. The apartments feature external balconies and clever in-built joinery.
