St Bede's College Durham Dormitory, Christchurch

Website

Initially engaged to 'tidy-up' St Bede's Durham building as demand for accommodation grew following the Christchurch earthquakes, the scope of the project expanded and our brief changed. Boarding facilities were added to the top floor and common room amenities to the ground. The top two floors are divided into a series of bunkrooms, 'homes away from home' taking the form of individual custom-designed bunk and storage pods. Honouring the existing structure of the historic building, we also opened up the internal spaces to access natural light and ventilation.

Awards: NZIA Local Award, 2015; NZIA Colour Award, 2015.
