After substantial earthquake strengthening an Italian restaurant adorns the ground floor complete with a purpose built wood fired pizza oven ventilated upwards through 2 stories of accommodation areas used for high end, short term rental.

Judges Comments


Continuing a tradition of hospitality, this restaurant and bar transformation brings new life to the Hydro building overlooking St Claire beach in Dunedin.

 

Significant structural upgrading was required to strengthen and repair the building followed by a meticulously detailed interior fitout, incorporating recycled timber from Christchurch and Central Otago.

 

This superbly finished product reflects the unique and special blend of contributions by landlord, tenant, consultants and builder.

Taking over 12 months to complete the extensive and careful internal deconstruction of all heritage items was done before any works commenced.  The challenge was restoring the original features of the Victorian Gothic-style building, while making sure it had all the necessary services.

Devonport Library is a glulam portal structure with a cladding of vertical ship lapped cedar weatherboards which allows the library to blend in well with its park-like surroundings with windows framing the harbour views on the south and east sides of the building.

Judges Comments


Driving down the main street you may not even notice Devonport’s new Library. But that is part of its success, for although it is a substantial building, it sits quietly amongst the trees.

If you look closely however, you will see a beautifully crafted building which is a credit to the entire team that brought it to completion.

Judges Comments


This building is an exemplar in concrete construction –both pre-cast and in-situ - with massive wall and floor components constructed to exacting dimensional tolerances.
