Resn Labs China by Resn for Resn
LightPath by Monk Mack Monk Mackenzie Architects and LandLAB for New Zealand Transport Agency
The most instagrammed thing in Auckland since everyone got sick of photographing their dinner? But seriously, the Light Path is Auckland on the right path. A great design (nice job everyone) for an even greater project (nice job NZTA). And ... it's pink!
Bethells Bach by Herbst Architects for Unknown
Lonely Wellington by Knight Associates for Lonely Label
No one makes quiet, minimal retail spaces like Knight Associates. A similar space for Lonely won a gold pin at the Best Awards last year. This does the same thing at least as well.
Saan by Cheshire Architects for Saan Restaurant
Pleasantly out of touch with the too-many-renovated-warehouses trend, Saan, light, lush restaurant by Cheshire Architects is nice to look at but even nicer to eat food in. Step out of Ponsonby Road into some parallel universe french colony in contemporary Southeast Asia.
