AIRFIELDS QUARTERS, Hobsonville | Tile Warehouse

One of Auckland's newest developments, 'Airfields Quarters' at Hobsonville, is second to none in design and product selection quality. Two palettes were created to offer prospective buyers - a neutral palette to which the buyer can add their own bold touches, and a more dramatic scheme with lots of warmth and contrast. The show suite has been completed in the 'Dusk B' scheme (see photos). Feedback from the estate agent is the darker colour scheme Dusk has been the most popular with the dark Sintra tiled splashback.

Practical and elegant, the tiles add pattern and texture to the schemes, adding a touch of earthiness to the interiors. The beauty of tile is that they can be modified to fit project requirements. In this situation, the Sintra tiles in the splashback were cut down to suit the height space for equal-height off-set lay. 

Airfields is a neighbourhood comprising almost 900 homes, developed to a master plan that balances and harmonises all elements within the neighbourhood, and takes into consideration neighbouring precincts also.
