Ranui Library is a light and open 800m² two-storey building, which features a distinctive tree-patterned galvanized steel structure enveloping the exterior.
Sustainable design was a priority for the Ranui community, with natural light, thermal mass walls, and natural ventilation all making it a lovely place to be.
The team overcame the challenges posed by the small site, located on a busy West Auckland intersection, and the high water table, to deliver a new superb new community facility.
