The Isaac Apartments, Grey Lynn, Auckland

The Isaac Apartments

The Isaac Apartments are a high quality, 3 building apartment development by Ockham Investment.  Inspired by Isaac Newton's work with optics, the buildings are named Newton's First, Second and Third Buildings.  Exterior and interior finishings continue the optical theme, with a focus on texture as a form of light interference.  Used in the entranceways of the first building to be completed are the glossy Venis Hills wall tile, with a corrugated iron like wave; and the matt white Venis Street wall tile, with a linear texture.  The floors are tiled in Venis Ferroker Platino, providing a subtle complement.  Used in some apartments is the Pacific Edge plush tile carpet, with Hills wall tiles in the bathrooms, and Mirage Stones Celtica as an attractive dark contrast floor tile.
