Aorangi House wins international award


On 6 September 2018, Aorangi House, one of New Zealand’s most energy-smart buildings, co-won the Leadership in Sustainable Design & Performance Award in the Commercial category, as part of the World Green Building Council’s (WorldGBC) Asia Pacific Leadership in Green Building Awards.

 

Previously an outdated 1970s office block in Wellington, the Aorangi House revitalisation project demonstrated how upcycling an existing commercial office building can significantly reduce environmental impact. The design team consisting of Beca and Studio Pacific Architects adopted an integrated design approach to the major refurbishment including concepts as simple as opening windows.
