This project is the development of an international standard five star hotel operating under the Park Hyatt brand situated in a Wynyard Quarter site with two waterfront sides. The hotel consists of a series of restaurants, cafes, bars and function spaces on ground and the first floors as well as a roof top bar. Public access is also encouraged by link ways through the building and a continuous colonnade on the ground floor.
The hotel is seven stories above ground plus basement and was developed in conjunction with a public promenade as well as adjacent harbour facilities. Major attention has been in the areas of sustainability, cultural richness, guest experience and the integration with the public to develop this project as a new destination in Auckland. MPM led a large international team with the lead architect’s Ar+d based in Singapore and the interior designer Conran being based in London. Hawkins partnered with China Construction to carry out the construction.
