Massey University’s Wildbase Hospital and Administration Building in Palmerston North has received an award in the Education Category of the NZIA Western Branch Architecture Awards.
Jointly designed by Studio Pacific and Lab-works as a ‘cornerstone’ for Massey’s Veterinary School, this building was described by the judges as a “much needed public face for the school and is a unifying element on campus. The building’s organisation allows for flexible planning options and much-needed adaptability. The ‘street’ provides a light-filled public space that connects the existing buildings and lays down a blueprint for the direction of future developments at the school”.
Studio Pacific’s Lianne Cox, Agata Halagarda, Sarah Berry, Andrew Banks, Juliet Barker, Marc Woodbury, Simon Faulkner and Bruce Green worked on this project alongside Lab-works. Congratulations to the project team and to all other winners on the night.
