2020 Wellington Architecture Awards Winner
An aspirational client and a responsive architect came together to realise this vibrant urban hostel. The upgraded existing commercial building and adjoining residence exude character, inside and out, and stand out from the eclectic mix of buildings on their street. The rich interior experience is achieved using recycled timber, black structural bracing, vibrant tiles, and colourful lights skimming the brick walls in the stairwell. Designed to create opportunities for social interaction amongst its occupants, the animated building is ready to play.
