A project at the other end of the country – in Auckland’s Long Bay – won the supreme award. Constructed from four shipping containers, the Long Bay Showroom and Café was made by Cameron Cotton of Cubular. “This design is robust, environmentally sustainable, energy efficient, affordable and relocatable. It is also beautifully designed and constructed. The industrial nature of the shipping containers has been embraced,” says Astrid Andersen, general manager of ADNZ, of the commercial project.

And Christchurch architectural designer Cymon Allfrey of Cymon Allfrey Architects took out the Residential New Home over 300m² prize.
