The inaugural Dunedin Heritage Re-Use Awards at Wall St recognised architectural redevelopments which have given heritage buildings a new lease of life.
"We wanted to identify barriers to economic re-use of heritage buildings and overcome those barriers," Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull said.
"We also wanted to recognise the owners who have done the hard yards in re-using buildings. It is challenging to re-use old buildings, but the results are far in excess of what you can get in new buildings."
The student design competition award, based on a theoretical redevelopment design for Garrison Hall, was won by Samuel Brown.
The aim of the competition was to demonstrate how imagination and creativity could give heritage buildings a new life suited to modern uses.
The awards were an initiative of Dunedin City Council heritage policy planner Glen Hazelton, to recognise and encourage heritage building redevelopments.
Results were: Dunedin re-use award, BrandAid/Diesoline, Bath St; Highly commended, Arrow House, Moray Pl, and Natural History New Zealand, Princes St; Student design competition award, Samuel Brown; Octa special award, Jessica White.
