Congratulations to three of our project and client teams who were celebrated at this year’s New Zealand Architecture Awards!

Hamilton's APL Factory, Wellington's New Zealand Post House and Christchurch's 141 Cambridge Terrace & Lane Neave Lawyers were winners in the Commercial and Interior Architecture Categories respectively.

The Awards celebrated 28 different projects on the night, with the Judges providing citations for all. Here's what they had to say about ours:

"The APL Factory in Hamilton is a spacious, light-filled working environment that is already an architectural landmark. The jury said the factory’s long roadside elevation is a fine addition to the streetscape and wider urban scene.'”

"The NZ Post House in Wellington is a “concrete brute of a building that has been revitalised with quirky pods and ‘village green’ kiosks, and an internal street through the ground floor that is a welcome alternative thoroughfare to windblown Waterloo Quay.”

"141 Cambridge Terrace–Lane Neave Building is a 'light-filled, naturally ventilated and highly legible building in which an elegant material palette complements the building’s exposed structure,” the jury said. “The intended effect, which has been achieved admirably, is an energised, purposeful and healthy workplace.'"

The awards acknowledge innovative and inspiring work from across New Zealand and are the result of months of judging both locally and nationally.

A huge congratulations to all involved, and to all our fellow award recipients!
