Gallery: Auckland’s Eco Ironbank Features Robotic Car Stacking Garage

 
In 2009, it received three architecture awards in the "commercial", "sustainable" and "urban design" categories of the New Zealand Institute of Architects Auckland awards.

The Ironbank is located in a unique historic area in between of Auckland’s central business district and a quarter undergoing urban renewal. The project was recently awarded a 5-Star Green Star rating from the New Zealand Green Building Council for its forward-thinking green systems, which include rainwater collection, solar hot water heating, natural ventilation via a night purging system, low embodied energy materials, and the recycling of nearly 95% of the construction materials.
