Twenty four projects were clear winners at this year’s NZ Architecture Awards, the Country’s premier architecture competition. This being an Auckland-centric blog we have decided to only feature the Auckland projects that won awards. We have our favourites of course and they are 21 Queen Street, Birkenhead Library, St Kentigern School Jubilee Sports Centre, Rock House on Waiheke Island and Newmarket Train Station.
