2020 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
Point Wells Cricket Club
It would be hard not to be bowled over by this exuberant folly at the bottom of a private garden. Ostensibly the Point Wells cricket clubrooms, this nostalgically referenced elegant shed is a real labour of love. The architects have taken the brief for a small shelter to hold a beer fridge, and created at long on (or, depending at which end the batter is on strike, third man) an ode to the joy of watching cricket, complete with exaggerated flag poles and an old school wooden bench on the verandah, all designed to delight and amuse. Could this be the perfect man-shed?
