Team European are re-developing their site on Cambridge Terrace incorporating the standard building forms for the new Porsche and Audi showrooms, as used around the world.
We had to alter and manipulate the structural form from that used in Europe to account for the greater lateral loads expected in Wellington due to earthquakes. While doing this, we had to be sympathetic to the appearance of the buildings so that overall architectural form was essentially unchanged and elegant.
A high level of attention to detail was required to ensure that the buildings reflected the engineering excellence of Porsche and Audi.
