Havelock North High School Tech Block

Completed

2002

Location

Havelock North

Napier

This project was unusual in that it involved placing technology facilities into a rectangular courtyard that was surrounded by buildings on all four sides.  The circulation pattern resulted in a need to form a curving wall which is possibly the main feature of the project.  High level windows brought daylight into the deep plan and this was distributed through the spaces using full and part height glazed partitons.  The project was successful through considered planning, choice of materials, good detailing and attention to colour.
