A futuristic Dunedin apartment, designed by Mike Stevenson, of Stevenson Design, has won a national award for architectural designers.

The "New New New Residence" sits above a boutique brewery near the Oval, on a site that was previously home to a 19th century hotel and stables. The new building in behind the historic facade is an offset cuboid form. The interior features fluorescent colour and lighting. The project won the commercial/industrial award at the Architectural Designers New Zealand national design awards, where the judges described it as a playful design with a complex and intriguing layout.
