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 Building Workshop by Strachan Group Architects

The Motu Kaikoura Building Workshop is well underway with a wonderful group of architects building a new community hub for Kaikoura Island off Great Barrier.

SGA, in association with Architecture + Women are facilitating this construction education programme. The majority of the new building is being pre-fabricated in the SGA workshop, and will replace a building which was destroyed by arson in 2013. If you're interested in helping out, the Motu Kaikoura trust has started a give a little page.

Here are a few photos of the progress and learning so far.....
