We are very excited that a scheme by one of our team member’s, Rose Wilkins and her sister Anne have won the Nohonga Challenge run by the Auckland branch of the NZILA. The scheme reflects upon ‘Connection versus Isolation” which plays with the new spatial awareness which developed during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The project is going to be built and installed in Britomart during November/December then relocated to Brick Bay Sculpture Trail for a further install of up to 12 months.

We are delighted to announce Jacob Bowden from our office is 1 of 12 students selected for the NZIA Student Design Awards for Student of the Year. His project investigates the missing link between architecture and waste through a sculptural form to ‘glorify’ key stages of the recycling process. It celebrates plastic as a material and attempts to create transparency around its ability to be used again and again. Congratulations Jacob!

On Wednesday, BA stepped outside our office for a day spent at the Sea Scout Hall in Herne Bay for our 2nd Advance with our wonderful facilitator, Kaaren Goodall.
The day involved looking at our internal and external story, our design process and looking at our future directions including sustainability in the office and our world.
On the menu for lunch, Kevin took us through his ‘Eat Chinese food with Kevin – Part 2’ where everyone got involved in making homemade traditional dumplings. Yum!
A great day was shared with all!
