215 Lambton Quay

Website

Property Asset Management Limited, Wellington 2001

215 Lambton Quay is a two level retail development at the corner of Grey Street and Lambton Quay on Wellington's ‘golden mile'. The design brief was for a transparent pavilion connected directly to the adjoining ANZ tower block that would offer a high quality and highly visible retail frontage.

The design approach was to clad the building entirely in glass, with a form that draws modulation and rhythm from the existing tower while retaining a sense of distinctness to maximise retail exposure. Large toughened glass panels are neatly suspended from a series of steel fins with no visible transom or mullion, utilising planar glazing spider fittings and silicon jointing to achieve a smooth transparent façade. The overall effect from street level is of a continuous ribbon of glass.

Following the project’s completion, the pavilion was tenanted by global retail brand Esprit. The glazed façade was utilised as a billboard, with quality super-graphics communicating a highly recognisable identity for the tenant.

ANZ has since elected to locate its main Lambton Quay branch in the space, reflecting the prominence and importance of the site. The pavilion has maintained its street appeal with an enduring architectural treatment that has since been replicated on other corners of the building.
