With unobstructed views toward the Western Town Belt and Seddon Park, Tristram Precinct stands on a prominent site on the outer edges of the Hamilton CBD, boasting 14,000m2 of A-grade office accommodation. According to the brief, the development of the site needed to maximise its potential by providing a significant increase in net lettable area. Contrary to the original, inward-focused building, we considered how the new design would complement the landscape and strengthen the connection with the pedestrian infrastructure that surrounds it.
Internally, carefully positioned light wells pierce the upper levels, providing natural light deep into the large floor plates. Outside, clean lines are punctuated by solar control louvers on the glazed northern façade.
