Five cen­tral Auck­land projects were recog­nised in the New Zealand In­sti­tute of Ar­chi­tects Re­sene New Zealand Awards.

Top hon­ours went to the Brit­o­mart build­ing up­grade, car­ried out by Jas­max in as­so­ci­a­tion with Mario Madyay Ar­chi­tec­ture and Sal­mond Reed Ar­chi­tects. The for­mer post of­fice, built in 1912, was hon­oured in the her­itage and con­ser­va­tion cat­e­gory.

Judge Richard Naish says the project was suc­cess­ful be­cause the old and new el­e­ments of the build­ing work so well to­gether.
