Project Type: Government
Architects: Warren & Mahoney
Construction has started on this new resilient purpose-built Archives facility in Wellington which will house and protect our memory of government and taonga to best practice standards and provide specialist facilities for conservation and digitisation at scale. The new building will be connected with the National Library by a link bridge for easy transfers between buildings and better collaboration across the campus.
Taranaki Whānui Te Atiawa representatives and design agency, Tihei have worked alongside Warren & Mahoney to co-design this building with a te ao Māori world view, connecting the building to the whenua it sits on and acknowledging the people that lived here before.
