Ockham Building is an L-shaped apartment building providing a mix of small to medium-sized apartments. The configuration of the building has been designed to address the two street boundaries of the site. The apartments overlook an internal west-facing courtyard and have been designed to maximise natural ventilation and lighting. The development sits on the corner of Rossmay Terrace and Sandringham Road. The immediate vicinity of Rossmay Terrace is a residential street and contains mostly older detached houses. Sandringham Road is a busy, city-fringe street with residential and commercial properties. The site is opposite the Eden Park Stadium. The site has a slight slope towards the northwest with approximately a two metre of fall over the site. The 25 apartments are arranged over four floors with a mix of one and two bedroom apartments. The building has been considerately massed to provide a compatible scale to the street and residential neighbours. Recycled railway sleepers and embossed concrete panels are a feature of the building frontages.

The Auckland Design Manual provides supplementary guidance to the Unitary Plan on design matters,
which will be updated by the Council from time to time. The Manual is not part of the Unitary Plan
and the Unitary Plan doesn’t incorporate the Manual by reference in the terms of the provisions of
Part 3 of Schedule 1 to the Resource Management Act 1991. While the Manual sits outside the Unitary Plan,
advice notes are occasionally included in the text of the Unitary Plan
to alert the reader to the existence of relevant guidance in the Unitary Plan.
