University of Auckland, University Hall Residences
University Hall is situated to the south of Elam and protected from the edge of the motorway by a wall of trees. Architect Warren and Mahoney have designed two tower blocks housing 422 students, separated by common areas and lifts.
The building is clad in German terracotta tiles in mixes of grey and orange, with alternating window placement of the rooms. To create an interesting design both 175mm and 200mm high format tiles were selected, in varying lengths.
