This 2 storey office building was located on a residential site with excellent profile to the main retail street.


The existing site was occupied by 3 small run down houses and through a Resource Consent process, it became apparent that the best use was Commercial as an extension of The Mount’s town centre.


The narrow site and minimum car parking requirement resulted in a dynamic form with upper level supported off a ‘cranked’ steel structure over the carparking.


The complete external envelope was Black with full height glazing enjoying view of The Mount. The red flashes of colour were introduced to the corner panel and the soffit of the floating roof.
