Public buildings are at the heart of our communities. Enduring civic spaces such as libraries, museums, theatres, and courts nurture communities and individuals and enhance our neighbourhoods and cities. We design for longevity, to create places that will enrich people’s lives for generations to come.

Our Public team engages deeply with the purpose of each project, guided by a respect for the surrounding culture, community, and landscape.  We design and deliver complex and varied projects reflecting an alignment of function and form, including the multi-award-winning Tūranga Central Christchurch Library, The Pā a landmark building at the University of Waikato, and the recently completed multi-purpose Papa Hou theatre facility.
