2011 Nelson/Marlborough Architecture Awards Winner
Trafalgar Park - Stage 1 Upgrade
Working to a tight budget, the Architect has produced a significant and highly functional new boundary ‘zone’ for Trafalgar Park. The simple palette of low-maintenance materials includes naturally weathering timber, natural concrete and galvanised steel. The overall design and each of the key elements are robust and carefully detailed. The public entrance spaces at each of the park’s gates are well scaled, inviting and appealing. Successful links between the architecture and the landscape elements have created a unified edge to the park, connecting it with the city.
