2023 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
Saint Kentigern Macky Building and Specialist Facilities
In dramatic fashion, this new component of a comprehensive masterplan frames the edge of playing fields on one side, while forming a finer grain edge to an internal lane on the other. Robust in appearance and materiality, this building is a recollection of tradition, formality and consistency. The rigour exercised in the modulation of the external envelope is also present in the diagram and consequent planning solutions that allow for the efficient circulation of users across the course of the day. This building projects an identity of confidence, stability and academic intent while taking its place within the wider school complex.
