Betts Apartments, Nelson CBD

With internal city living at a premium, it is essential that every square metre is utilised to its maximum advantage and there is no better example than Betts Apartments in Nile Street, Nelson.

Seventeen luxury apartments built as part of the special housing project initiative, just a few metres from the Cathedral and Nelson’s vibrant restaurants and bars, provide regeneration to this underuti-lised inner city carpark. Mainly positioned so they run north / south or east/ west, these apartments optimise the sun, natural ventilation and of course, stunning views over Nelson City towards the Tasman Sea and surrounding hills.

With a range of 1 or 2 bedrooms plus several penthouse apartments, the street edge appeal is stunningly enhanced by a mixture of dark timber and cedar screens with recessed balconies. Indoor / outdoor flow is maximised by 2.5m high x 7.5m wide stackers with similar height windows throughout the apartments.

Internal courtyards provide additional outdoor privacy while the stairwell curtain wall, comprised of individual 3.0m high 40mm seismic frames further enhances the light, airy feel to the complex.
