Authentic local connection and heritage features

The previous Overseas Passenger Terminal was an important part of the city, with its strong connection to boating, fishing and weekend activity.  Wellingtonian’s have always considered it a landmark site, but now with the additional of a residents community, better amenities and inviting public spaces, its popularity is set to grow.

The new building’s design draws inspiration from the existing building, re-using or replicating some elements, and building on nautical imagery in an even more explicit manner.  It also has landmark qualities as strong as the present building.

The “Prow” of the new building is as bold as the old, while the “stern” is far more emphatic, resembling the superstructure of a containership.

The form of the roof, akin to an ocean liner, closely matches the old structure, and has replicated it in the middle section with the original spaire reconstructed and the bands of glazing rebuilt.  Several large mosaic artworks that were commissioned when the terminal building was opened in 1964 are also being re-used.

Intrinsic to the overall design are nautical and marine themes that have always defined the building, with references to a ship’s hull, structural ribs and decks.  In keeping with the theme, the long sides will incorporate elements that are cantilevered or recessed, creating shelter and visual interest along the length of the building.
