ADNZ Regional Awards || Results

We're excited to share that two of our projects received recognition at the ADNZ Regional Awards last week, including a Highly Commended for the Hekerua Bay residence!

Located near Oneroa Beach, Waiheke Island, the Hekerua Bay home sits on a very steep site, facing north with views towards Hekerua Bay and beyond. This new build was designed to maximise the coastal views using a limited budget, and provide multiple flexible outdoor spaces.

Our Granny's Bay residence also received recognition in the category for alterations and additions. The approach to the home directs focus to horizontal ribbed zinc clad box mimicking the grey moody hues and rippling waves of the Manukau Harbour. Living spaces are purposefully directed to the view south with a series of decks, layered as platforms down the site.

Creative Christmas Spirit

We're proud to be regular contributors to deserving charities and donation drives. It is important to us to give back to our communities, and the holiday season saw us supporting a donation drive for the families of the Kaipara Harbour tragedy, and also the NZME Special Children's Christmas Party. 

This amazing day gave over 2,000 children with life threatening diseases, intellectual or physical disabilities, or those living in disadvantaged circumstances, a day they will never forget. The children came from local schools and various Government, community and charitable organisations that are involved with these children on a daily basis.

New Year, New Office | Creative Arch

Happy New Year everyone! We're looking forward to an exciting 2017 here at Creative Arch, with a number of completed projects coming to fruition, and plenty of new projects to get our teeth into.
We're diving straight back into work after the summer break, but while we were away it's been busy over at the site of our brand new offices. See for yourself in a timelapse of the demolition progress over at 29 Nixon St on our Facebook page - www.facebook.com/CreativeArchLtd
