2018 Wellington Architecture Awards Winner
Park Mews (1973)
Few buildings say ‘Wellington’ like Roger Walker’s Park Mews. This local landmark, with its signature turrets and portholes, is not just a talking point for those trekking through Hataitai to the airport; it is emblematic of a period of New Zealand architecture that shunned modernist norms in favour of a more radical approach. Park Mews is a high point of a building style that has become as synonymous with Wellington as the gabled modernism of Miles Warren and his cohort was with Christchurch.
