About this Project

Peddle Thorp + Fearon Hay are proud to have won the design competition for what will be Auckland’s premier hotel experience.

The concept design by Peddle Thorp + Fearon Hay took out the competition ahead of four other short-listed firms for the 5-star hotel on Halsey St facing Auckland’s vibrant Viaduct Harbour.

The winning concept was chosen by a jury assembled by Waterfront Auckland, and was decided by a clear and unanimous vote. The jury was “impressed by the clarity and directness of this proposal, from initial concept to material selection, architectural language and spatial logic”.

The concept for this 300-room hotel includes features designed to recall the maritime history of the site, and embraces its magnificent water-edge position. Its form also speaks to the site’s more recent activity as home to America’s Cup syndicates. The jury acknowledged also the design’s “compelling approach to sustainability”.
