Case Studies – 20 Customhouse Quay, Wellington
Positioned on prime Wellington waterfront real estate, 20 Customhouse Quay is one of the most unique and visually striking commercial office developments in New Zealand.
Responding to requirements for a seismically advanced building, Studio Pacific Architecture adopted a modern diagrid structural system which has been flexed to create a subtle faceted curve on the building’s main facade.
To help achieve a 5 Star Green Star rating, as well as protect the lobby for the cold and strong wind gusts experienced in Wellington, a revolving door to the main entrance was deemed essential. After consultation with building owners, Newcrest, a Hybrid Series revolving door from record was selected in a 3500mm diameter to provide generous segment spaces necessary for handling peak morning and lunch time traffic flows.
