Waitakere Central Library And Unitect Facilities | Auckland, New Zealand | Architectus
Architectus Auckland in conjunction with Athfield Architects, this project consists of the new Waitakere City Central Library, which also integrates the UNITEC collection, and new teaching facilities for the UNITEC Institute of Technology. Sited adjacent to the existing UNITEC building in Henderson, the two buildings (and a third, attached car parking building) are arranged around a new pedestrian street and urban square to form a new civic precinct. Part of a building programme that includes the nearby Waitakere Civic Centre, the project is intended to act as a catalyst for the future development of the Henderson CBD.
