2018 Waikato/Bay of Plenty Architecture Awards Winner

Genesis Building

Excellent connectivity to the city’s urban fabric and handling of materials – including glass, timber, concrete and folded metal – are hallmarks of this renovated and extended supermarket building. The building benefits from the architect’s care in sequencing the approach and circulation throughout the building, and from the control of natural light. Perforated metal louvres resembling twisted ribbons provide solar control on the expansively glazed façade, and the top-lit atrium and large skylights fill the interior with appropriate levels of natural light.
