Auckland Architecture Awards by Strachan Group Architects

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.

Below are some photos from the night....


Motu Kaikoura by Strachan Group Architects

After many long days working on this special community project, the prefabricated building was shipped to Kaikoura Island late last year. We are very proud that this logistically challenging project is almost complete. Below is a timelapse video of the dismantling and installation of the building, and a couple of images from the island.

Thanks also to the builders from from Crate Innovation and JR Hosking Carpenters who helped us out along the way. But thank you mostly to the 16 courageous women of the SGA Workshop x A+W NZ build programme whose hard work and determination led to the realisation of this project.
