This stunning retail and hospitality development is designed as an u2018urban garden, built around open, welcoming green spaces.
Designer Nat Cheshire of Cheshire Architects describes The Pavilions development as an u2018anti-architecture project, with a focus on softness, fluidity and greenery. Narrow dark wood slats, steel trusses, trellising and soft reclaimed brick anchor a profusion of climbing vines and lush foliage.
Eight fashion and specialty boutiques, each housed in its own distinct pavilion structure, are clustered in the centre of Britomart, set under a high translucent peaked roof.
Showcase and Sanctuary Garden
Across Te Ara Tu0101huhu Walking Street are the award-winning twin black-mesh Showcase structures, now part of the Pavilions development. The Showcase is constructed from structural steel clad with purpose-designed perforated black aluminium panels. At night the structure glows, lit by over 1200 linear metres of LED lighting.
Between the two Showcase pavilions is the Sanctuary Garden, a courtyard space containing seven carved pou by Waiheke artist Chris Bailey. The work is entitled Pou Tu Te Rangiu, or the standing posts that reach for the heavens.
The Pavilions at Britomart is a medium-term development located on the Britomart Central future development site.
