The winners have been announced at the NZ Institute of Architects Awards for the Canterbury region, and one building in particular has won big: Athfield Architects' conversion and redesign of the Christchurch Civic Council Offices and Chambers (both images below) won awards in the categories of Public Architecture, Sustainable Architecture, Interior Architecture, Planning and Urban Design (for its connections with surrounding buildings and the streetscape). Incidentally, New Zealand Green Building Council chief executive Alex Cutler chose it as her favourite building in our current issue.
