2020 Canterbury Architecture Awards Winner
ANZCO Foods Head Office
In this enviable workplace a sophisticated interior alludes to the client’s industry in a tasteful and unpretentious manner. An agricultural narrative has been translated through rich, earthy tones of exposed concrete, New Zealand Blackbutt timber and earthen tiles. Industry references are used subtly throughout, none more impressively so than a screen wall made of 300-year-old timber sourced from the butcher’s floor in London’s famous Smithfield Market. A successful collaboration between the interior and base build architects has enabled the seamless incorporation of client-requested modifications while maintaining the architectural integrity of the broader concept.
