OUSA University Bookshop


"This is a subtle re-invention of a former confectionery factory, which sits right on the univeristy's doorstep. Private light-filled apartments are located above a much-loved retail institution - the University Book Shop. The factory's existing building fabric is respected, with characterful brickwork and delightfully rudimentary timber truss work enlivening spaces and telling their story. With an adaptive mixed-use space at ground level and quality living upstairs, this is a great reference for the rehabilitation of Dunedin's rich CBD heritage." Jury Citation
