New boat storage shed for the Kohimarama Yacht Club.
Having researched the rich history of the area, we wanted to imbue the new building with clear references to the legends and stories attached to the surrounding area. At the same time, we recognised that boat sheds are in essence a European form. (Maori rarely built on or over the water.)
It has been an exciting challenge, bringing together two cultures in a building that is rich in meaning while serving a practical purpose.
