Judges’ comments 
Situated on a narrow corner site, the principle behind the design is an arrow, pointing Northwest showing an interaction of the mountains and the city.

Glass panels on one side reflect the Victoria Clock Tower while exposed Mt Somers limestone, recycled timber and corten steel Louvres on the Northern side of the building assist with controlling the sun’s heat.

The triangular building makes full use of the site and consists of a basement, a restaurant on the ground floor and 3 levels of offices with a steel frame and metal deck floors.

A significant challenge for the team was constructing this building on one of the busiest intersections of Victoria, Salisbury and Montreal St. Also the basement was below the water table so pumps were required continuously to dewater the site.

Standing proudly on its site, this building was one of the early rebuilds after the devastating Christchurch earthquakes.
