Warren and Mahoney worked with Panuku, Precinct Properties and Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) to realise an ambitious design-led vision for an Innovation Precinct. Our involvement has been from initial masterplanning through to detailed architectural design. The Precinct consists of 48,000m² of high quality, sustainable office space across five buildings within the Wynyard Quarter block bounded by Halsey, Pakenham, Madden and Daldy Streets.

Innovation is a globally competitive marketplace and the design of the Precinct is informed by international trends in innovation and clustering. The Precinct references New Zealand’s rich tradition of innovation and invention and incorporates technology and design to achieve exemplary technical, commercial and environmental performance.

By nature, Innovation Precincts are organic, living environments. As such, the Precinct provides a wide range of spaces to support businesses at different stages of their evolutionary cycle,  actively ‘curating’ a range of business types – from embryonic to established – through the provision of scalable and flexible spaces. The design of the Precinct breaks down the conventional boundaries between businesses. Co-working spaces that allow businesses to come together in neutral, flexible and technology-rich environments provide a completely new kind of environment for the city.

A successful Innovation Precinct never sleeps – it is always alive, always working, always safe. The Precinct will be linked to the global community, accommodating the working styles of flexible, programme-oriented teams working to inflexible deadlines.

“Innovative research and learning is about people interacting so we aimed to break down the physical barriers between traditional science groups by providing stronger connections.” Rodney Sampson
