Te Aka proposed concept design images

Images of the proposed concept design for Napier's new library and governance facilities.

Design Process

The proposed concept design for the library and governance facilities has taken shape through discussions with mana whenua, stakeholders, councillors and the future users of the facility and the surrounding outdoor area.

The design team considered the environmental, built, social, and economic context of Ahuriri. They then tested design options with NCC, mana whenua, stakeholders and the public (Say It Napier People's Panel) to gain feedback on the design ideas. Input from mana whenua has been very important to the concept design principles, including the cultural foundation and narrative and other design elements such as the selection of native plants to be included. 

The proposed concept design was further refined after reviewing this feedback and identifying and addressing the key themes and issues raised.

The following images are proposals that are indicative of spaces and layout, not detailed design specifications. The detailed design has yet to be completed.
