Client Brief The resource consent had been granted for a generic retail building. We were asked to take that initial design and turn it into something beyond ordinary.
Parlante Solution “We took the original square box and turned it into a desirable development that our client was able to lease promptly, thereby maximising the sites potential. We wanted it to look and feel contemporary rather than the traditional strip mall look other developers had used in the area. We used bold, but neutral colour that created a simple backdrop for the tenants’ corporate signage. Concrete, glass and metal were employed to give a crisp, contemporary finish. Horizontal lines were emphasized using functional louvres and a corner display window.
