- NZIA Waikato Bay of Plenty : Architecture Award
Designed to house over 6,000m2 of warehouse, showrooms and office space the development successfully achieves the challenging functional requirements of a large storage and distribution building, as well as creating a vibrant and enjoyable open office space.
The building was designed as two separate forms connected by a large light filled atrium that clearly denotes the entrance, acts as a central spine linking the two functionally different spaces together.
The open plan office benefits from full height glazing to three elevations which creates a light airy atmosphere. The northern elevation is articulated with vertical sun blades which control the mid-day shading, enhancing the main street view.
The building achieves a prominent and unique identity within Tauranga which fulfils the client’s diverse needs.
