Cheshire Architects - Nat Cheshire
Title: Destroying the City.
Soundbite: Britomart is strip-mining the
city, leaving shocked streets and suburbs in its wake. I think this is a brutal
surgery that is saving this city from itself. I think this owes as much to
roughness and ugliness as it does delicacy and beauty. I think this is the

Jeremy Salmond is a practising architect who specialises in the conservation of historic
buildings. As the founding director of Salmond Reed Architects, and
in 2007 he was awarded the Queen’s Service Order (QSO) for his contribution to
the preservation of New Zealand’s heritage of
significant buildings. His
work with old buildings developed after publishing Old New
Zealand Houses 1800-1940, and since 1986 he has been associated with many
significant heritage projects in Auckland, including the old Jewish Synagogue,
Civic Theatre, St Matthew in-the-City Church, the old Chief Post Office, the
Art Gallery and the War Memorial Museum. Jeremy is currently the heritage
architect for the Britomart Precinct and the Arts Centre in Christchurch. Jeremy has a deep interest in philosophical issues related to conservation and the
way in which modern technology can assist in resolving conservation issues.
In particular, he's interested in “normalising” heritage buildings as a
valuable and relevant component of the modern city and contemporary life.
Arch MacDonnell is the creative director of Inhouse, an
based design studio established with his partner Jane in 1995. A graduate of Swinburne
University (Melbourne), his work spans both the
corporate and arts sectors with a particular interest in arts publishing.
He has collaborated with many of New Zealand's leading contemporary
artists, curators and galleries to create a body of work that is as diverse as
it is consistent: at its core are the same attention to details and craftmanship.Curiously
strong mints make him sneeze.
Nat Cheshire moves
organically from huge institutional and urban master-planning work to the
digital fabrication of bespoke door handles and the hand-finishing of
furniture. He has been working in architecture since leaving art school, and ran
a boutique practice before joining with father Pip to start Cheshire Architects
in 2004. Together, they make work shaped around the depth of their ideologies,
rather than the thinness of styles. That works operates across fields of luxury
and poverty, newness and age, roughness and delicacy. In two years Nat has
completed around fifteen projects in Britomart
Peter has been instrumental in the design and development of a number of successful brands and communications material for New Zealand and overseas companies. He has also been involved in the design of major signage projects. Peter is on the D:three D360 assessment team for Better by Design and was a graphics judge in the Best Design Awards, 2003.
Jim has been involved in a wide range of product design projects for clients in New Zealand and offshore. He also has significant experience in public and private signage projects and was on the D:three D360 assessment team for Better by Design from 2004.
