2021 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
Long Bay Village Centre
Simply put, Long Bay Village Centre feels like it has always been there. It is a masterclass of urban design and planning that considers everything across all scales, from main streets to downpipe placement. The architects have expertly worked with the land contours to plan plazas, courtyards and streets around a well-proportioned building mass, where the apartments and offices above shops contribute to the urban grain. The architecture has various forms and angles that avoid predictability, and the palette will allow this township to age gracefully and become a unique coastal destination.
