Located on the gateway site of the Victoria Quarter precinct and opposite Victoria Park, Mainzeal House isa striking addition to the urban fabric. The new home for Mainzeal’s Auckland office is surrounded by heritage buildings, commercial, residential, and mixed-use. The building occupies an important corner site and is highly visible upon approach to the central city from the West.
The transparent main entry and large format retail space on the ground floor continues the active edge along the bounding streets. A ribbon-like stone clad entry frames the ground floor gallery lobby space.
The refurbishment of this existing building maintains the primary structure. A new architectural glazed skin has been applied to the curved facade of the building. This tectonic facade incorporates Low Iron & Low E clear glazing and fixed aluminium blades, creating a vertical patterning to the curved facade.
The building’s sustainable elements is designed to achieve a ‘5 Green Star’ office building rating for both the base build and the interior fit-out.
The building seeks to strengthen the urban design principles of the area by creating a high-amenity, mixed-use environment – a welcomed addition to Auckland.
