We had a wonderful trip down to Hawkes Bay last month visiting some exceptional architecture by the late John Scott, and a few contemporary projects by Stevens Lawson.
We are visiting the Hawkes Bay in early November and have organised a talk with a selection of local practitioners. Please do come along if you’re in the area.
SGA will be opening our doors again this year for the festival of architecture’s Open Source event. Come along next Saturday afternoon (22nd September) to find out about the architectural process and gain some insight into the power of design. Or if you’d just like to pop in to see our work space, all are welcome.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the diverse line up of events that comprise the festival of architecture, please visit the NZIA website here.
We're pleased to see the Karanga Pavilion at Wynyard Quarter completed, the vibrant cladding colour is appropriated from classic shipping containers. We think it'll make a great addition to this bustling downtown area.
The current issue of Home magazine features our Triangle Road community housing project in the 'Off the Shelf' section; among other prefabricated homes, and residential projects which react in a unique way to the current housing demand.
We are honoured to announce that two of our projects have been shortlisted for the Best Design Awards. Both are the product of an incredibly hard working team in the office, excellent builders and understanding clients. Motu Kaikoura, and Bay House are up for public and institutional spaces, and residential categories respectively; both within the wider sphere of spatial design. Best of luck to all our design industry friends who have been shortlisted. Check out a full list of the shortlisted designs here.
339 has been featured in the July issue of NZ House and Garden Magazine. The issue is a special on sustainability, and this project is a perfect example of what can be achieved with sustainable design.
SGA were very pleased to be recognised at the recent Auckland Architecture Awards, alongside many amazing auckland architecture practices. It was a lovely evening at the Motat Aviation Hall, where we were privileged to see the high quality architecture being produced in our region.
SGA received two awards in the Housing category for Bay House and Whare Koa, and an award for Motu Kaikoura in the Small Project Architecture category.
