NZIA Auckland Award for Hurstmere Green
Hurstmere Green received an NZIA Auckland Award last week.
It was awarded in the Urban Design and Planning category and the citation read:
“Taking its lead from the iconic landscape features of Lake Pupuke and Rangitoto, this rejuvenated park now paves the way to seeing these natural wonders afresh by opening up vistas and elaborating a Maori narrative and volcanic geology. A 2006 competition winner, this plan integrates stone sculpture and wooden sun loungers to link, effectively and efficiently, the busy shopping street of Hurstmere Road with Takapuna beach.”
