2024 Southern Architecture Awards Winner - Invercargill Central

A mammoth undertaking for Invercargill, this development deserves recognition for its contribution to the urban regeneration of an entire city block, and in avoiding the soullessness that is Big Box retailing. 

Incorporating a multitude of new buildings and parking for 650 cars, the scheme also preserves three prominent heritage buildings.

Lighting design successfully showcases the retained heritage façades, with a lively installation to the southern exterior. 

Glass canopies on heritage façades are delicate and enable views of the beautiful articulation above the street. 

The architects have laid the foundation for a vibrant city centre.
