2015 NZIA Auckland Awards
In association with Noel Lane Architects, we received two New Zealand Institute of Architects Awards: a ‘Hospitality and Retail’ Award for the James Restaurant project, and a ‘Small Project’ Architecture Award for the Pool Pavilion Project. We would like to thank our clients and all consultants and contractors who contributed to both projects.
James Restaurant | Hospitality Award
NZIA Jury Citation: “Less is indeed more in this energising response to an old site with its double-height volume and concrete-formwork walls. A gesture as simple as hanging swathes of hot-pink sheer curtaining which can be arranged to configure a series of intimate ‘rooms’ or to frame the entire space, is exactly the right, inspired decision. Coming from the near pitch-black bar area, the room is an explosion of eye-popping, fun colour and a great environment for a party.”
