Alexandra Park, Auckland, New Zealand. This was one of those transformative mixed-use projects where we were able to craft a new urban neighborhood on an aging racecourse site – and build the first phase while maintaining the race operations in the short term. We bent the main shopping street around the existing grandstand, had great pedestrian urban open spaces on each block, and designed the public realm with direct references to Auckland’s natural context. And the client was absolutely terrific.
