Alyeska - Tawa Street

Alyeska is a striking contrast to the industrial and residential dwellings found in Tawa Street. The mixed-use building achieves a delicate balance between artistic creation and purposeful design. 

The client named the building “Alyeska” after his trips to Alaska. This passion for the water is reflected in the exterior powder-coated aluminium fins. 

The colours of the nearby ocean have been intentionally arranged on the screen to mimic the way the sun hits the water in Pilot Bay. 

The primary facade has another purpose. it regulates the building’s temperature through controlling the volume of light that permeates the upstairs space. Perforations, inspired by the shape of Mauao, create a dappled light effect while maintaining a temperate climate for the building's inhabitants.
