dc.description.abstractRESEARCH QUESTION: How might the soon to be defunct parts of Huntly Power Station be repurposed to provide for positive growth in the community of Huntly? ABSTRACT: The town of Huntly needs a new direction. Historically Huntly has relied on mining for jobs but a decline in mining in the area, and the progressive decommissioning of this power station, has left Huntly with a dwindling purpose. Youth crime is becoming a large problem. The town is in a state of disrepair and needs an injection to set it on track for a better future. This project is about the re-use of the soon to be defunct Huntly Power Station. Adaptive re-use of the power station provides an opportunity to reenergize Huntly. With the insertion of appropriate functions to the existing structures, it can contribute positively to the fabric of Huntly. Adaptive re-use of the iconic structures will cater for the needs of Huntly and also respect the historic role of this iconic building within the local community, the Waikato region, and as a generator of electricity on the national grid. Analysis of the social wellbeing of Huntly and an appropriate architectural response to this are fundamental in developing a successful scheme which would re-energize Huntly.en_NZ
