dc.description.abstract Auckland’s rapid population growth has caused an increase in the demand for more housing. This demand has pushed Auckland into two extreme directions: in suburban areas we are experiencing an uncontrollable sprawl where more and more houses are built to spread across rural land, while in the city centre, there is a significant increase in density at a much higher rate than other Auckland regions. In managing growth, many cities promote and prioritise intensification. This means to build densely and in the right place, for example in town centres and existing neighbourhoods. Densifying existing centres helps to reduce suburban sprawl, and to intensify the city as a whole. Intensity and density also means to increase availability of varieties that are suitable for multiple family needs. This includes providing different choices for multi-units, multi-use and multi-storey housing. Though higher density can provide homes for many, they may be unsustainable and lack the characteristics that create a quality living environment for a healthy community. In a sustainable city, density is not only dependent on its physical appearance and how many dwellings are created, but also on the amount of activity a place can generate. In responding to this social issue, this thesis sets out to find out about Auckland’s current housing situation, as well as providing insights into trades-offs and the significance of a neighbourhood environment. The research of this thesis also includes the importance of the community environment, quality living in a neighbourhood, and how this can be incorporated into density living. en
