Chapman Tripp Wellington Workplace Shortlisted in the 2023 NZIA NZ Architecture Awards

Studio Pacific is thrilled that Chapman Tripp's Wellington workplace has been shortlisted in the 2023 NZIA New Zealand Architecture Awards.

Sixty-one projects across 12 categories have been shortlisted in the 2023 New Zealand Architecture Awards. The prestigious, peer-reviewed national awards celebrate Aotearoa New Zealand's best architecture each year.

Chapman Tripp's Wellington Workplace fitout, designed by Studio Pacific, has been shortlisted in the Interior Architecture category of the 2023 New Zealand Architecture Awards.

Located in the base-isolated, 20 Customhouse Quay building on Wellington’s waterfront, over two floors, the new workplace offers a high-quality, contemporary work environment that accommodates close to 130 people, and provides a range of reception, meeting, and amenity spaces.

Inspired by the layering hills that border Wellington, a highly textured workplace is created through warm timber veneers, fabric-lined wall panels, textured wallpapers, woollen broadloom carpets, bronzed mesh panels, and thoughtful furniture selections in a range of settings.

The shortlisted projects will be visited by a jury including convenor Dave Strachan of SGA Architects, Sally Ogle of Patchwork Architecture, Ewan Brown of Tennent Brown Architects, and guest international juror Clare Cousins. Clare founded her eponymous practice in Melbourne in 2005 and works across a diversity of sectors, ranging from residential to cultural.

The jury begins their tour later this month and will conclude deliberations in early September. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday 16 November 2023 in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington.
