This morning’s congratulations are extended to NZ Post and the design and contractor team for their win at the Wellington Branch of the NZIA awards last night!
The NZ Post House was one of five winners named in the Interior Architecture category; the Judges commenting:
“This highly original makeover of New Zealand Post House is based around an internal street, between north and south entrance ways. This lovely space gives the public an interior alternative to gusty Waterloo Quay. The public invitation has been reinforced by the addition of a café and the positioning of private mail boxes at the heart of the floor. Upstairs the ‘60s staircases are preserved but lead to very modern work centre flows, with entertaining social and meeting spaces – ‘village green’ kiosk kitchens, grandstand meeting areas – collected around the northern core. This design shows fresh thinking that is extremely well realised.”
Thirty-five projects were shortlisted in total for the Wellington branch awards. To find out more visit the NZIA website.
