Leith Place - Tokoroa, New Zealand

Located next to a major highway, Tokoroa is a small town in the Central North Island of New Zealand. Once a thriving industry town driven by forestry and farming, people have moved to bigger centres resulting in steady decline for the town itself.

So the overarching brief became “How do we entice motorists to make Leith Place a preference to stop and take a break?”

As the site was long and narrow, DCA Architects created activation points in the north and south to catch interest and give people enough time to turn off from the highway.

The public toilets are connected by a unifying roof and exaggerated in height with timber shrouds, featuring Abodo’s Vulcan Screening in Straw finish.
