Red Architecture’s ‘innovative black barn’ has been awarded the ADNZ‘s (Architectural Designers New Zealand) 2014 Supreme National Design Award for its ‘subtle, economical and clever design’.

In addition to the Supreme Award winner, eight designs from across the country were presented Resene Architectural Design Awards at the ceremony.
