Albert Town - 106 Architects | ArchiPro

Albert Town

Alison Ave, Wanaka

Twenty Alison Avenue – Albert Town – is an existing mixed-use zoned site in Albert Town,  situated within a vibrant, growing community 10km outside Wanaka in the heart of New Zealand’s picturesque South Island.

106 Architects were engaged to undertake early bulk and location masterplan options for the client to assess project feasibility, and determine the development options to support the existing commercial building on-site.

This multi-residential and commercial project has realised 40 residential and visitor accommodation units, together with a 20-unit motel development that surrounds a refurbished commercial mixed-use hub. Located on the trail cycleway, this social hub will be frequented by locals and tourists alike.

The project aspires to fold into the landscape – referencing the Southern Alps and stunning views – through asymmetrical rooflines, selection of natural materials and landscape treatment. The scale of the development has been broken down to enable sightlines and views-through, with circulation supporting sitewide movement to join tourist trails and main arterial routes.    

Exterior cladding is a relaxed simple palette, including textured render, cedar timber cladding and sustainable hardwood battens. Interiors are reflective of the exterior, as a way to bring the outside inside.


  • This project was designed to contribute to the growth of Wanaka, Queenstown and surrounding areas.
  • A mixed-use development – commercial tavern, café, mini-mart, patisserie, retail; residential development apartments; visitor accommodation short-stay units/motel units
  • Design taking cues from the picturesque surrounding landscape.
