The COLORSTEEL® Awards recognise and celebrate New Zealand’s best architects, designers, roofers, and their projects, and Raglan’s Wainui Construction won the first Colorsteel Building of the year Award this year for their innovative ‘Two sheds in Raglan.’
The sheds are located at Nau Mai Industrial Park bordering the Raglan-Hamilton state highway, and were designed to suit both commercial and residential purposes. Builder Peter Wolfkamp said it was the innovative design that really impressed the judges.
“It has been built with versatility in mind, so the spaces can be matched to the needs of future tenants,” he said. “The simple details provide a functional and artistic element that transforms a ‘shed’ into an upmarket commercial destination.”
Designed by Red Architecture, the building displays Raglans strong connection to Architecture & design.
The judges thought the clever detailing of the recesses and the use of stained timber to define and draw the eye into the inhabited spaces were standout features. Along with the combination of colours and textures that anchors the building to its site and ties in well with the native landscaping.
