Te Uru TaumatuaTaneatua, Bay of Plenty
Fale Pasifika is the centrepiece of the University of Auckland’s Pacific Studies development. In under taking this project, the key challenge was to construct a building that represented the shape and function of a traditional Fale, while also meeting the structural criteria of the NZ building code and providing protection from the Auckland climate.

Te Papa TongarewaWellington
Te Papa is a bi-cultural institution in its organisational structure, exhibitions concept and its architecture. The final design brief centred on the Exhibitions Concept Plan developed by specialist exhibition designers, which expressed bi-cultural relationships through distinctive land settlement patterns of Aotearoa New Zealand. Thus, the Tangata Whenua Maori areas are facing North and the openness of the harbour, while the Tangata Tiriti Settler areas are aligned to the gridded street pattern of the early European settlers.
The Tepid Baths were originally built in 1914 and are a Category A listed building under the Historic Places Trust. Over 100 years, the building has been exposed to pool chemicals, the open air (originally the skylights were simply holes in the roof), condensation and seawater in the basement.
