The winners in the awards ranged from private houses to a high school, a bowling club to an ecosanctuary shelter and a chapel to an opera house.
The awards jury visited 46 shortlisted projects over nine days in September.
Jury convener and Auckland architect Michael Thomson
said he and fellow jurors Auckland architect Lynda Simmons, Christchurch architect Fiona Short, and University of Auckland architecture professor Anthony Hoete saw encouraging signs for the future of architecture and building in New Zealand.
A Lake Hayes house received an award in the housing alterations and additions category.
At Lake Hayes Cottage, Anna-Marie Chin Architects had moved and renovated an old cottage and connected it via a glazed link to a new barn-like bedroom wing.
The jury praised the "seamless and well-proportioned" addition for its "subtle shifts from old to new".
Abodo Showcase Cardrona, a showroom for a New Zealand timber supply company, designed by Assembly Architects, took one of three awards in the small project category.
The building might look like a small house, but, the jury said, it functioned excellently as "a beautifully crafted display box of the best qualities of its product".
Four awards, named for celebrated New Zealand architects, constituted the top tier of the awards.
This year, the John Scott Award for public architecture went to the Hihiaua Cultural Centre, a converted boatshed in Whangarei.
