Building Today, Volume 1 Number 2 (January 1937)

Marino Gardens — Mt. Eden

Marino Gardens — Mt. Eden

There are eighteen flats in Marino Gardens, arranged in a two-storey block having nine flats on each floor. Sixteen of the flats are arranged in four groups of four flats each, served by one principal entrance and staircase to each group; the other two flats have independent entrances. Each flat throughout the block has its own separate trades entrance, giving direct access to the kitchen, so that trades and services are entirely excluded from the principal entrances. Each flat extends the full width of the block, and thus secures direct sunshine both in morning and afternoon. The accommodation of each flat comprises private entrance hall, living room, with meal alcove, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom and rear service porch. The living room and meal alcove together occupy the full depth of the flat, 29 ft., and thereby secure good through ventilation.

Each flat is provided with an independent hot water service to sink and to bathroom, and is fitted with a refrigerator in the kitchen. Thirteen lock-up garages are provided on the site, together with three laundries and ample drying space.
