17 Landing Drive
The Landing


Completed 2019

The prominent location at the intersection of Landing Drive and Te Kapua Drive called for a specific design to respond to the extensive existing landscaping and the overall Business Park.

An array of steel fins form a sculptural screen which stands out against the building as a spark of yellow. The colour and movement of the screen are inspired by the surrounding tussock grasses, and gestures deliberately towards the intersection.

The effect is dynamic and vibrant as befits a commercial building, and changes shape and density as you move around it.

The southern office is single storey and directly faces the future runway. The same fins articulate this façade, responding to the landscape while acting to screen the interior and the outdoor terrace, and to frame the entry.

The building plans are designed with efficiency, flexibility, access to daylight and to maintain views out. The warehouse with a moveable inter-tenancy wall provides a long term flexible leasable space.
