5,200 sqm / Auckland
This mixed-use development includes a small hotel, apartments, commercial offices and retail space, all stacked over several levels of underground parking. The various functions are wrapped around a landscaped courtyard designed to provide a focus for the complex and bring light into the interiors. Fair-faced concrete and raw timber is softened with planting and the building’s complex silhouette, the overall effect being remarkably strong and crisp.
RTA Studio has received more than 60 New Zealand and international awards, including Home of The Year, a World Architecture Festival category win and the New Zealand Architecture Medal.
