Two Studio Pacific projects were successful at last night’s NZIA Wellington Architecture Awards ceremony.

133 Molesworth Street won a Commercial Architecture award and the Ministry of Social Development Fitout received an award in the Interior Architecture category.

The jury commended the 133 Molesworth Street team’s ability to overcome the challenge of working with a complex existing building to achieve a ‘powerful, lineal presence’ through the use of folded white spandrel panels and dark glazing.
