Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub - 106 Architects | ArchiPro

Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub

106 Architects had the role of Lead and Sports Architect and partnered with BECA and Global Leisure Group to investigate a sports-led masterplan for Christchurch City Council.

It was important that we located and connected the facilities – fields, tracks, courts, the landscape, and buildings – to service the needs of the growing local community. Our approach was to create a “Third Place” whereby the new $120 million facility is now the home to four key anchor sports: hockey, athletics, rugby league, and tennis.

The new green-field sports precinct functions as first and foremost as a community-level park, with the capacity to scale operations to host regional, national, and international events.


  • $120 million (Masterplan) / $50 million (Stage 1).
  • Scoped to host community, regional, national, and international events across four major sports streams.
  • A community-centric project designed to encourage the interaction of different sports and community groups through shared common facilities.
