Senior House, a private home, was noted for its “twin, high-block smokestacks, which accentuate the outline with their celebrated motion to the city”.

The convener of the recompenses jury, draftsman Geoff Fletcher, said the triumphant sections set the standard for good design in Wellington and close-by locales. These successful projects illustrate the rewards of close collaboration between clients, architects, engineers and builders, Fletcher said.
