Congratulations to Reset

The small township of Wānaka is to get a major boost to its globally renowned reputation with its new lakefront development winning an International Federation of Landscape Architects Award of Excellence.

The honour was presented in absentia to the project’s New Zealand-based landscape architects – Reset - at a Gala Awards Ceremony in Tokyo, Japan late last week.  Reset was the only New Zealand practice to win an award at the international event that celebrates the best work in the Asia and Pacific region.

The Wānaka Lakefront Development, which was praised by judges for the quality of its design, was commissioned by Queenstown Lakes District Council and created in three stages over an eight-year period.
