A Gold Award for UBT Auckland

UBT The Precinct, Auckland
We are thrilled to announce that our UBT Auckland project has won Gold at the Designers Institute of New Zealand Best Design Awards 2017, in the Offices and Workplace Environments category.

Following similar principles from UBT's Sydney head office, our Auckland team applied our Think, Create, Make methodology to create a unique coworking space for clients to innovate, collaborate and develop their businesses at UBT Auckland. With the look and feel of a boutique hotel, the space blends an effortless hospitality offering with spaces for collaboration, networking and coworking, taking advantage of the unique curved floor plate to activate each space.

“The award is a testament to the commitment and talent of our team, the global collaborative effort between our studios and the continued relationship with our valued client, UBT,” said Harry Rowntree, Regional Principal, Design.

Established in 1988 and led by The Designers Institute of New Zealand, the Best Design Awards is an annual showcase of excellence in graphic, spatial, product, interactive and motion design with a jury of international design peers.

The jury said: “As a combined working space, the restrained palette caters to the different occupiers while still maintaining a personality of its own.”

Congratulations to the project team of Harry Rowntree, Luke Rogers, Neil Lao and Rose Williams.
