Devonport architecture practices Herriot + Melhuish : Architecture Ltd (HMA) and Dave Pearson Architects Ltd have received design awards in Public Architecture and Heritage Architecture from the New Zealand Institute of Architects as part of the 2010 Auckland Architecture Awards.

Herriot + Melhuish : Architecture Ltd received a Public Architecture Award in association with Opus International Consultants for the design of the new Newmarket Railway Station which open earlier this year, as part of the upgrade of the Auckland railway network. Ken Davis of Herriot + Melhuish : Architecture Ltd explained that the new steel and glass station building provides generous, light filled, sheltered public spaces which straddle and connect to the railway tracks below. The judges described the building as “an elegant vertical slip of a station” which “emphasised the joys of railway travel.”

Dave Pearson Architects received Heritage Award in association with Warren and Mahoney and Woods Bagot( Australia) for the integration of the 1940’s Jean Batten Building with the new Deloitte Office Tower at 80 Queens Street. The award recognised that building would have otherwise been demolished if it had not been able to be incorporated into the new development.
