As the middle of another busy year in residential and commercial design approaches, we are delighted to announce some exciting new appointments at Bossley Architects.

Benjamin Somerville has been appointed an Associate. He has been with us for ten years and has been a valuable member of our team. He has been involved in a number of significant projects, including the recently completed Hearing House in Greenlane.

Benjamin’s technical skills have seen him make an invaluable contribution to the Park Hyatt Hotel on the Auckland waterfront, including preparation of the BIM model of this very complex building currently under construction.

We look forward to Benjamin’s input in to more managerial roles in projects and in the studio.

Finn Scott has now become a Senior Associate. As an Associate for the last few years, Finn has been working on projects as varied as apartment buildings in the Vinegar Lane development and more than 100 terrace houses, walk-ups and apartments at Hobsonville.

He has been involved in designing and overseeing a beach house on Waiheke Island, and is currently Project Architect on a large sculptural house in Takapuna, being built of in-situ white concrete.

Finn became a Registered Architect in 2017.

We are delighted to be announcing these changes during a year which has been stimulating and busy so far. Our 19-strong team looks forward to continuing to work with our clients, collaborators and consultants producing award-winning buildings of the very highest quality.

As always, our aim is to produce “Architecture that lifts the spirit”.

TANS museum award

The Project Excellence Award is presented for an outstanding museum or gallery project that contributes to best practice in the Museum sector in Aotearoa New Zealand and demonstrates excellence, relevance, innovation and vision. The judges said, “The award went to the visionary Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom, in Foxton. This project was developed through a ground-breaking three-way cultural partnership. The result is a feeling of real community ownership for the centre.”

We are delighted that the Library /Museum/Community facility project recently completed in Foxton has just be rewarded by the NZIA. The complex project which houses the public Library, a Maori Gallery, a Dutch Gallery, and community facilities has made a welcome impact on the life of the local township. The judges citations reads:

” It is the result of a decade of politicking, but the impact of this wholly appropriate and apparently simple stroke of genius on the town of Foxton has been immense. The architects have “suspended a waka in a Mitre 10 shed”, and in doing so created a community hub around the iconic Windmill, Whare Manaaki and Flax-strippers Museum – bringing iwi and Netherlands’ histories together across a library and connecting the main street town centre back to the river. This project showcases the best of what architecture can contribute to our communities.”

Many thanks to wonderful input from the Horowhenua District Council team and all the volunteers, consultants and contractors, the majority of whom were locally based.
