The New Zealand Institute of Architects' awards season is now in full swing, with another fine batch of buildings being recognised in the institute's Nelson/Marlborough Architecture Awards. First up, something you will have seen in our December/January 2012 issue: the Brancott Estate Heritage Centre (below) by Fearon Hay Architects, a winner in the commercial architecture category.

This holiday home (below) by Min Hall and Arthouse Architects won an award in the residential category, and will be featured in our next issue.

Wellington's Tennent + Brown Architects picked up two residential awards for homes in the Nelson/Marlborough region, the first for this house in Okiwa Bay (below, photo by Marina Mathews) and the second for the Waiwhero farmhouse (two below, photo by Jason Rothenberg), which is featured in our current issue.

There were two winners in the Enduring Architecture category. The first is a 1961 house by Ernst Plischke, photographed by Patrick Reynolds. 

The second Enduring Architecture winner in the region is photographer and publisher Craig Potton's house (below), designed by Hal Wagstaff and photographed by Paul McCredie for our February/March 2011 issue.
