Congratulations to Jeff Fearon and Tim Hay at the team at Fearon Hay Architects: the winners of our Home of the Year award in 2000 are now the winners of the competition to design a new hotel for Auckland's Wynyard Quarter, on the site of Team New Zealand's former base. The five-star, 300-room hotel (artist's impression below) is being design in collaboration with Peddle Thorp Architects and is expected to take five years to reach completion...


...but you don't have to wait that long to see the duo's work in the area, as they have also designed two buildings at North Wharf not far from the hotel site which will be ready for the opening of the first stage of the development on August 6 (you can see them in the image below). This is an exciting new precinct for Auckland, so we encourage you to head down and take a look when it opens.
