A stormwater retention basin on an awkwardly-shaped piece of land has been transformed into a sophisticated haven of fluid transitional space, by expertly weaving complex and multiple technical challenges of water retention and cleansing. Croftfield Lane now provides an intriguing route in and out of the Wairau Valley Commercial Precinct.

A stormwater retention basin on an awkwardly-shaped piece of land has been transformed into a sophisticated haven of fluid transitional space, by expertly weaving complex and multiple technical challenges of water retention and cleansing. Croftfield Lane now provides an intriguing route in and out of the Wairau Valley Commercial Precinct.

The base planning is clever, inviting and engaging to the user providing numerous options to move and interact within this small space, from the expedient to the imaginative. The palette used is restrained to what feels more like a selection of textures and forms than materiality. The client and design team are commended for their vision.
