Design Studio Appointment

The Community-Led Design Group (CLDG) advocating for Ponsonby Park, the new civic space at 254 Ponsonby Road, is delighted to announce the design studio has been selected to progress the Ponsonby Park project.

And without further ado, drum roll, please. The design studio is… LandLAB!

The CLDG is delighted with this appointment and we extend our congratulations to Henry Crothers and his team.

LandLAB’s Park+ concept design for Ponsonby Park was chosen by the community in 2017 as their preferred option.
Since then the design has gone on to achieve several awards both in NZ and internationally;

– NZILA Award of Excellence in Unbuilt Visionary (2019)

– World Architecture News (WAN) Future Projects: Civic Award Winner (2018)

– World Architecture Fes;val (WAF) Civic Future Project Award Finalist (2018)

As the LandLAB website says; “

“PARK+ Ponsonby
In a world with increasingly complex problems, collaboration is essential. PARK+ was LandLAB’s winning entry into the Ponsonby Park design competition held in late 2017. This project pilots a new model for community-led engagement, a design-led process, and interdisciplinary collaboration beyond a ‘business as usual’ consultation process”.

Ponsonby Park will be a wonderful community amenity, meeting existing needs, as well as being an exemplar of community engagement, design excellence, and delivery. So we’re delighted that the transformation of the site at 254 Ponsonby Road into a beautiful and energised civic space for everyone to enjoy is now underway. Ponsonby Park will benefit not only the local residents and local businesses but also all visitors to Ponsonby. It will be a wonderful attractor to the area and will provide both the amenity that Ponsonby needs and the community heart that it deserves.
