New Wellsford War Memorial Library

Auckland

Responding to an increasing population and changes in modern learning methods, the new Wellsford War Memorial Library is nearly 5 times the size of the original building. It’s strong and simple form references the town’s agricultural history through its loose ‘shed’ aesthetic. Internally however, it is very much a library of the future. A plaza connects the library and museum, serving as both entry court and attractive open space. The park’s war memorial gates and flagpole were repositioned in the plaza, making a generous setting for ANZAC day commemorations.

Victory Church

Auckland

The Victory Christian Church Reinstatement Project results from New Zealand Transport Agency acquiring church land to construct Auckland’s Victoria Park Road Tunnel. Jasmax acted as administration architects for dKO Architecture who were the project design architects based in Melbourne. The work involves refurbishment of the existing Beaumont Centre 2400 seat Auditorium, the addition of an auditorium extension, and the construction of a new administrative building, fronting Beaumont Street and taking advantage of wide views over the Waitamata Harbour. A landscaped plaza and children’s play area form an external gathering space. The in-ground car park beneath is cut into the site, providing car parking for up to 347 vehicles, while being screened by “green wall” planting and a distinctive “saw tooth” façade.
