2020 Waikato/Bay of Plenty Architecture Awards Winner
University of Waikato Tauranga CBD Campus
This new campus links two streets with a new pedestrian laneway and creates a welcoming urban space. The building is massed into two volumes, establishing a sensitive street scale and articulating different functions within. Bicultural design and storytelling are embedded in the expression and sequencing spaces, as well as the skin of the building. The buildings have a great sense of connectivity to place and have established a strong living presence in the city.
