Te Ara Tahuhu and The Pavilions
Te Ara Tahuhu is the plant-lined pedestrianised street that leads from Britomart Transport Centre to Takutai Square. The low-rise buildings along it are known as The Pavilions and were designed by Cheshire Architects. In the courtyard connecting Te Ara Tahuhu with The Hotel Britomart (where Allbirds, The Store, Sass & Bide and Fabric are located) is the artwork Pou Tū Te Rangi by Chris Bailey (Ngāti Hako, Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Paoa Te Aupouri, Irish), a name that translates as ‘the standing posts that reach for the heavens’ and celebrates the connection between tāngata (people) and whenua (land).
