Name: Mountaineer Atrium Building
Location: Queenstown CBD
Typology: New Build
The clients wanted to better utilise their atrium with an additional commercial space and an area to celebrate the history of the site. The steel, glass and boiler plate new building was a complex design challenge that had to complement and work with elements of the existing building. The existing timber slats where used to incorporate new display cabinets, which house artefacts uncovered during the archaeological excavations beneath the building during its redevelopment. These cabinets, along with new display media, tell the interesting and long history of the Mountaineer site.
