Stacked and folded
In a gesture to the finely scaled historical neighbourhood, we have sought to fragment the building form to alleviate the potential mass associated with a medium sized office building. Hence, five towers are further fragmented vertically to articulate the composition of stacked office and retail spaces gathered into a socially sustainable working community.
The building is 'Ecologically Sustainably Designed' and has received the first 5 Star As–Built Greenstar rating from the New Zealand Green Building Council.
