Asteron Centre

The Asteron Centre is Wellington’s largest single office building at 48,000m². This 17 storey premium grade commercial building occupies a prominent corner position opposite the Wellington rail station and main bus terminal.

The building features office space over 12 levels, retail units and a spacious lobby at ground floor with two levels of parking, a rooftop plantroom and lift motor room occupying the remainder of the space. The building is segmented into two distinct contrasting elements – the strong north portion which is articulated vertically over two stories and the contrasting lightweight portion which features a translucent cloak element extending beyond the building edges. This façade, along Featherston Street, is predominantly horizontal, with the vision windows recessed into the façade, forming a backdrop to the government buildings opposite.  A generous glazed recess separates both elements allowing glimpses of the office activity within. Internally a glazed atrium vertically connects the building, and provides high levels of natural light.

The building’s footprint serves to complete the city block and provides a definitive edge to the street frontages. It also completes a major pedestrian link from the city to the station.

Environmentally sustainable design principals were integral to the building’s design and it has been awarded a 5 NZGBC Greenstar office design rating.

Providing a strong articulated appearance without dominating the existing surroundings.
