Unique design character. The materiality of The Greenhouse has been inspired by the natural environment of Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau


Designed to stand out and fit in, The Greenhouse is a special apartment project by Ockham Residential. The Greenhouse story is one of craft, texture and materiality. Carefully designed to enhance the local streetscape and skyline, The Greenhouse offers residents an opportunity for exceptional liveability in Auckland’s most exciting neighbourhood.


The materiality of The Greenhouse has been inspired by the natural environment of Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau – the brilliant green forests, black sand beaches, timber and basalt, and the ever-changing colours of sea and sky.


In a busy urban environment, your home should be the opposite – calm and serene, a place to retreat from the pace of the outside world, or to watch it pass by from a private, sunny and sheltered balcony. Human-centred design means designing for real life, so The Greenhouse apartments have excellent acoustic and visual privacy, large windows and doors and high ceilings. They are warm and light-filled, with rich, tactile and durable surfaces. Special care has been lavished on the lobby, hallways and residents’ lounge and terrace, so everyone can enjoy the building’s common areas.


Our material palette references nature and seeks to bring it inside. We think design that connects us with nature, literally and figuratively, can have health benefits. The Greenhouse’s specially commissioned green-glazed bricks are a one of a kind (or 180,000 of a kind!). Inside, elemental materials – timber, stone and metals like bronze and brass – have been chosen for their beauty and tactility.


Located on the corner of Pollen Street and Williamson Avenue, it has one foot in Ponsonby and one in Grey Lynn – two lively Auckland suburbs with colourful communities, some of the city’s best shops and restaurants, large parks and great transport links. Park the car – K’Road, Herne Bay, Freeman's Bay, Wynyard Quarter and the city centre are an easy walk away. On an e-bike or scooter you'll be there before you know it. The Greenhouse is close to everything.


If you like to eat and drink – and hey! who doesn’t? – you can’t beat Ponsonby Road. So many options, so many styles, so many price points. Take your pick from top-flight restaurants like Saan or Blue Breeze Inn, or the neighbourhood institution, SPQR. Ponsonby Food Hall has your cheap eats covered, while at Ponsonby Central you'll find a smorgasbord of eating options.


Ponsonby Road is a mall in the best sense of the word, a long avenue best suited for leisurely strolling. (As it happens to be lined with exceptional shops, selling everything from homewares and furniture to flowers and fashion, it’s pretty much a mall in the other sense of the word, too.) If your idea of Saturday sport is trawling cafes and boutiques, then you’ll be right at home here. Want fresh food fast? The supermarket is literally across the road.
