A finalist in the 2020 Property Council New Zealand / Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards, ‘the Old Arts Building’ at the heart of The University of Auckland required thoughtful consideration of its history, while considering the modern daily life of the university.

Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) provided commercial certainty led by Hamish Dackers.

The respectful restoration of this significant site required purposeful design by architects Warren and Mahoney, remarkable engineering solutions, and careful execution.

The refurbishment uncovered and restored many of the buildings significant historical features that had previously been lost.

Together with the Property Council New Zealand, RLB is passionate about promoting and celebrating leading practice in the property sector via the Property Industry Awards program.
