2013 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
Sunderland Precinct Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP)
With the increasing emphasis on creating a higher quality, more compact Auckland, this Comprehensive Development Plan is a step in the right direction. The design team has developed a framework that acknowledges the historic fabric of the area and aims to maximise the coastal edge. The plan, while considering market realities, takes a constructive approach, learning lessons from and aiming to improve upon previous development stages. The developer is to be commended for the early commitment shown to the area, which has become a destination in its own right. This can now be built on to enable the development of an active mixed-use and sustainable community.
