Manukau road is both renovation and new-built with each a different program and identity, but both the same appeal.
A priority was to carefully balance old with new, preserving and emphasizing a piece of identity of the original building within the future design. The existing structural grid of concrete columns and beams are reused as structural elements, as well as visual and aesthetic elements where appropriate.
They are deliberately chosen to be left bare and play an active role inside the apartments and offices to be without being obtrusive.
It is a part of history that is kept alive in the living rooms of tomorrow.
