A look at how engineered timber technologies have been used to enhance the architecture and sustainability of several Studio Pacific projects, either recently completed or underway.

Three specific case studies:

  • He Tohu Exhibition – the timber document room housing, the 1835 Declaration of Independence of the United Tribes of New Zealand, the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi, and the 1893 Suffragettes Petition, as well as the utilization of computer controlled cutting techniques to deliver a complex curved rimu interior.
  • Nelson Airport Terminal utilizing large span LVL.
  • RJH House, Wellington, which at twelve stories will be New Zealand’s tallest commercial building utilising a timber structure.
