King & Queen Hotel Suites

BRIEF

Boutique hotel  & penthouse apartment & Ozone roastery courtyard.

LOCATION

West End Precinct, New Plymouth. Neighbouring the historic White Hart building, and opposite the Govett Brewster Art Gallery & Len Lye Centre.

DESIGN

The design incorporates a clever intergration of functional elements. The vertical louvre screen which has become a distinct and iconic feature of the hotel offers sun shading and privacy as well as acting as a balcony barriers. The screen creates some relief and movement to the King Street facade. The design facing Egmont street is sympathetic to the scale and context of the street& the White Hart Hotel. Full depth canopy over the footpath continues a living edge and provides an urban scale.

COMPLETION

2013

UNIQUE PROJECT FEATURES

Archaeological discoveries – Historic wells filled with early settler rubbish.

Collaboration with New Plymouth District Council to allow use of air rights over both Queen Street & King Street footpaths.
