Thackeray Street Apartments

Location: Auckland & Hamilton

Judges Citation:

"This set of three apartments is an exemplar for inner city housing. These apartments may be compact but the spaces are generous, light-filled and welcoming. There is a natural and joyous expression of materials. Large areas of concrete block are enriched by beautifully crafted timber joinery and slatted or plywood ceilings. The semi enclosed courtyard of the main apartment and clerestory light-wells allow an ever-changing play of light across the concrete walls. The spaces are warm, firm and comfortable with an easy flow and a well considered balance between privacy and view. The building is both strong and gentle, protective and open and emanates a serene peacefulness that makes it a wonderful place to live."
