This project combines existing statistical information on housing projects in Europe with a new comparison on a variety of apartment buildings in New Zealand. A housing review was first undertaken via a series of case studies on projects by Housing New Zealand, various councils and private developers. These case studies examined dwelling statistics such as FAR (floor area ratio), site coverage, dwelling units/hectare, and people/hectare. The research will provide important background data for the continued development of medium density housing projects in New Zealand, as a comparison with some traditional and more recent European medium density housing schemes.
