Auckland Waterfront Hotel


Auckland Waterfront Development Agency


Viaduct Harbour
New Zealand

Completion Date

June 2011

Waterfront Auckland’s competition jury lauded the winning Peddle Thorp/ Fearon Hay entry for the “clarity and directness of the proposal, from initial concept to material selection, architectural language and spatial logic”. The scheme, for a new 5-star hotel on Halsey St fronting the Auckland’s Viaduct Basin, sought to enhance visitors’ and the public’s enjoyment in and around this waters’ edge building. The design draws on the aesthetics of the shipyard, while satisfying the brief’s complex operational and environmental requirements.

A unique blend of Peddle Thorp hotel knowledge and Fearon Hay insight. We look forward to moving this one forward- an outstanding project in a privileged location.
