2020 New Zealand Architecture Awards Winner
Point Wells Cricket Club
Point Wells Cricket Club shows there is still a place for architectural follies in the world, albeit this pavilion and its attendant field have some social purpose, being made available to local school children for their matches. Small but perfectly formed, this uniformly red building with a royal blue interior, adorned with flags and bunting, plays along with the charming absurdity of the activities carried out in green and white on the field it addresses. Detailing is precise without being precious and every aspect has been carefully thought through and resolved in an unassuming manner. Were colour awards given at the national level, this surely is a project that would be dignified by such recognition.
