Congrats to Az James and Workshop e on winning  the Museum Project Excellence Award  for Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom at the NZ Museum Awards.

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.

The recently completed Parekura Bay House is another iteration of our “encampment” houses.  Three separate wings sit almost parallel to each other, following the slope of the land and gently rotating in plan as they drop down the hill.

Construction of the new library and museum in Foxton is progressing rapidly, the form of the pop out mezzanine area is now clearly visible.
