New Zealand Architecture Award for Hurstmere Green

Hurstmere Green was awarded a NZIA New Zealand Architecture Award last night at an awards function held at Shed 10 on Queens Wharf.

The jury citation reads:

“This sophisticated and sensitive project – an excellent example of multi-layered urban planning and design – exhibits a delight in craft, a command of materials, and a mastery of detail. These qualities make the project successful in its own right; just as importantly, the architects never lost sight of the big picture. Social and commercial agendas have been addressed, as have the urban and topographical contexts of the work. A strong, underlying axial desire line, connecting the high street, beach and Rangitoto Island underpins the concept. Artwork is successfully integrated into the project and ordinary materials are handled extraordinarily well. A high level of skill and competence has produced an excellent example of multilayered urban planning and design.”
