The BNZ central city project, now a key landmark in the retail precinct of the central city, was designed by Sheppard & Rout Architects. Opened last year, it is a mixed-use development with retail, commercial and hospitality tenancies. Its design has been recognised in the Planning & urban section of the awards. The Christchurch Arts Centre Clock Tower and The Christchurch Club, were both significantly damaged during the earthquakes. Both of these historically cherished buildings had their restorations designed by Warren and Mahoney Architects – gaining the firm two finalist shortlistings in the heritage section of the awards. The Diver Apartment on Victoria St has earned architectural firm MAP a finalist position for its interior architecture. This modern suburban dwelling has been enhanced with soft, smokey hues contrasted against sharp modern lines. There were a total of 51 New Zealand projects shortlisted for the awards, with eight of them from Christchurch. The convenor of the awards jury, Arrowtown architect Louise Wright, said the relatively high number of shortlisted projects was testament to a strong year in New Zealand architecture. “The range and quality of recent architecture projects made it difficult to decide what to leave off the shortlist,” said Wright. She and fellow jury members, Auckland architects Lance Herbst and Jack Mckinney and Australian architect kerry Clare, will visit all of the shortlisted projects to decide the winners. “Auckland architecture is evidently booming and it’s good to see a stream of strong projects emerging in Christchurch,” Wright said. “The jury is also pleased that there are strong award contenders in the public architecture category.” The winners of this year’s New Zealand Architecture Awards will be announced in Auckland on November 10.
