2016 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
St Cuthbert's College Centennial Centre for Wellbeing
This exceptional building illustrates the architects' unhindered diligence in seeking simplicity, sophistication and flawless precision. In the main volume the resolute structural, spatial, material and modular rigour provides potential for either a serene individual experience or the more electric atmosphere of competition. One unexpected yet superb architectural move is worth singling out: the pool enclosure opens across an external laneway to adjoining courts and a seating area, expanding the main volume and amplifying the spatial experience. This building will motivate users and their families for generations to come.
