Museum Hotel

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — 90 Cable Street, Wellington

The apartment building sits as a backdrop to the Museum Hotel. It is designed as a black box which doesn’t protrude into the major view shafts.

The materials are matched: black concrete and cedar. The shutter looks to externalise the residential nature of the building, while maintaining a link to the residential level of the Museum Hotel. The eave detail is repeated on the canopy at street level and linked by a curtain wall on Tory Street – enveloping the central core with the penthouse level above and the retail below. The random nature of the solid panel inserts and shutter details allude to the unpredictable nature of the residential activity.
