NEW CONTEMPORARY ART GALLERY

The redevelopment of an historic 4-storey telephone exchange into a contemporary art gallery, with shops and restaurant on the ground floor.

“The New Gallery in Auckland is a work of art…. It is easy to enter the building a critic, but only a steel-willed cynic wouldn’t exit a convert…..the space is swoon-inducing.

Respect: that’s what gives this conversion its class. Stout and Mitchell respect the past but face the future front-on, opening up old forms to new functions…. With architects like this, who needs artists?”

-Justin Paton, NEW ZEALAND LISTENER, 4 November 1995
