CONTEMPORARY WATERFRONTby HUB Street Equipment
Integrated concrete and timber furniture elements give Auckland’s newest public waterfront a striking visual appeal.
Wynyard Quarter is the newest addition to Auckland’s public waterfront space since the area was redeveloped for the America's Cup in 2000. Wynyard Quarter comprises approximately 37 hectares of land and almost three kilometres of costal frontage. Stage one, completed in August 2011, provides 500 metres of places and spaces right next to the water’s edge for the public to enjoy.
Jellicoe Street, North Wharf and Silo Park occupy the water’s edge offering entertainment, cultural, retail and event space. This space is supported with new mixed uses including office, retail and residential developments.
Wynyard Quarter was developed across a number of separate, but carefully coordinated projects. Appointed by Waterfront Auckland, HUB worked directly with the design consultants to take on their furniture concept design ideas and then detail design, prototype and supply the various styles found across site.
The main furniture elements include the integrated timber and concrete furniture elements, the rustic timber bench barriers and bollards and the colourful inverted stacked industrial baskets, all offering informal seating and architectural accents in the urban landscape. Collectively, the furniture reflects “Auckland's gritty maritime heritage in a new, revitalised public environment”.
Jellicoe Street, North Wharf and Silo Park projects set the bench mark for urban design and detailing which is being repeated across subsequent stages and projects including the recently complete first stage of the Halsey Street and Daldy Street upgrades, the Tram Loop and the soon to be developed Tank Farm.
