Using distinct typology classes to categorize buildings has become an essential tool for earthquake loss estimation studies. Classifying buildings allows a more manageable and efficient study by considering the definition of common terminologies to sort and group the variations in structural characteristics and construction practices. Wellingtons geographic landscape at the head of Te Ika a Maui is dominated by steep slopes, which when combined with the high seismicity due to its proximity with the alpine fault, makes it a unique challenge for the performance of residential housing. The objective of this study is to provide a typology in order to inform the structural modeling based on characteristics that have been identified as influencing the seismic response i.e., torsion, wall length, positioning, and concentration of openings.
