Ponsonby Combining New with Old

A private sanctuary offering guests luxury accommodation is designed to capture breathtaking views of the Waitemata Harbour. This new build in one of Auckland's special character suburbs employed traditional gable forms and cedar weatherboard cladding to sit comfortably alongside neighbouring heritage homes.

The Dunedin Railway Station is one of New Zealand’s most iconic architectural landmarks, renowned for its Edwardian design and its symbolic role in the country’s rapid railway expansion during the late 19th century. Salmond Reed Architects spearheaded the conservation efforts to repair and maintain the building’s exterior on behalf of Dunedin City Council.

A tasteful renovation to an inter-war period house subjected to a number of renovations over the years.

In March 2023, the Winter Gardens were fully re-opened to the public following a complex two-year project to seismically upgrade and undertake major repairs and improvements to the glasshouses and wider site. The repairs and strengthening works were complex and required a number of changes to the structures, which have been carried out with the utmost care and attention to detail to ensure that the heritage values of the place have been protected and enhanced. This icon site has been conserved for the future. This has been accomplished on time and within the original estimates on behalf of Auckland Council.
