Airways Wellington Control Tower

Website

Studio Pacific Architecture’s design for Airways New Zealand's new Control Tower at Wellington International Airport has been positioned for optimal controller sight lines and visibility at the airport.

The tower appears to be leaning into Wellington’s prevailing northerly wind, echoing our own personal reaction to the strength of the Wellington winds.

Studio Pacific has partnered with Paris Magdalinos Architects of Napier, who designed the new air traffic control tower at Christchurch Airport, to deliver the specialist technical capability and design experience required to design a modern air traffic control tower. The structure uses the latest 21st Century seismic engineering in a collaboration with Holmes Engineers and Hawkins Construction. The building rests on base isolators and is designed to withstand severe earthquake shaking.

The design provides the functionality that is absolutely essential to aviation safety while also creating a dynamic building that is both memorable and recognisable.
