Have we been premature in declaring the quarter-acre pavlova paradise dead and buried? House Talk looks at two alternatives to the traditional NZ housing model: in Queenstown and in Auckland.
In some theoretical past, all Kiwis had access to a white picket fence and a picture-book house. Whether that’s true or not, there’s no doubt that access to housing has never been more difficult.
In this episode, the House Talk team explore two different approaches to fixing the problem: higher density and separating the house from the land.
The two strategies – in Auckland and in Queenstown – are radically different, so which stands the greatest chance of success?
