We are thrilled to announce that B:Hive has been announced the winner at the World Architecture Festival Inside Office Award. Judges described the project as an exemplary example of a sustainable and flexible workplace. 

Inside celebrates the world’s best interior architecture and runs alongside the World Architecture Festival (WAF). B:Hive was the only New Zealand project to make the highly competitive INSIDE shortlist.

Located at Smales Farm, Takapuna on Auckland’s North Shore, B:Hive has been described as “a state-of-the-art workplace; it signals what the future of work might look like.”

This is the 10th award accolade for the project, which has already won the Supreme Award at this year’s Interior Awards, the NZIA Auckland Branch Interior Architecture Award, and an Australian Institute of Architects’ 2019 International Chapter Interior Award. B:Hive also received Excellence in the 2019 Commercial Office Property Council NZ awards.

Congratulations to our project team, client and collaborators!

This the second Jasmax project to win at the 2019 World Architecture Festival. City Rail Link won the WAFX Cultural Identity prize, which was announced in September. 

 

"The co-working hub is an ground-up exemplar of the future of workplaces, and it's a credit to our Smales Farm client's progressive vision and our successful partnership with BVN Architecture that it's been recognised on the world stage. We're thrilled it joins our other WAF winner for this year, City Rail Link, which won the WAFX prize for Cultural Identity. Congratulations to our whole project team."
