TE PUIA ROTORUA
Te-Puia is the thermal centre located in the cultural epicentre of Rotorua. The project consisted of the demolition of the existing and dated premises, and the construction of the all new contemporary concrete structure which houses the visitor centre, restaurant and bar. The Allistar Cox designed building beholds incredible visual site-lines through to the natural beauty of this thermal wonderland. Allistar’s ability to amalgamate natural timber and concrete is a sight to behold.
The entire structure has been constructed in formed concrete, creating a complex and involved process to ensure the integrity of the architects’ design. The Holmes Wairarapa team completed this stunning project for the client over a twenty month period, on-time and on-budget. The Holmes Wairarapa team delivered a superior level of quality and craftsmanship to the project, along with Renall’s joinery, who supplied all the timber finishing work, allowing Te Puia its inspired and detailed aesthetic.
