We were selected as 1 of 4 finalists to provide a concept proposal for this redevelopment

Our concept seeks to enhance the historical importance of the Auckland High Court building in the context of the development of the city, while providing for the future requirements of court proceedings.

The three original facades of the historic building are revealed as originally intended, its incorporation into the new complex respecting its scale and position on the site.

The architectural articulation of the external appearance of the new building evokes a symbolic cloak wrapping the historical building in the tradition of a Maori Kaitaka.

The old and new together representing justice, power and authority shared by two peoples.
