Our design objective was to create an efficient, functional and flexible workplace for Trustpower and in doing so, make a positive contribution to Tauranga’s maturing CBD. The building occupies the entire width of the site. A large central atrium provides physical and visual connection between the three office floors. Above this atrium is a saw-tooth roof, this introduces glare free natural light to the centre of the floorplate. Full-height glazing to each upper level is broken by a recessed aluminum panel at every floor. The glass is a random mix of four colours and three widths, selected to create a subtle mix of transparency, tone and reflectivity.
