Silverscreen Productions / Oktobor, Wellington
The raw concrete frame of this old fish market (and then nightclub) has been overlain with a fresh aesthetic for a Wellington-based film production and post-production company. All the internal spaces are arranged around a central atrium space with a combination of highly controlled work spaces required for filmmaking technologies, and open plan spaces required for creative thinking.
The atrium space allows for a high level of natural light and ventilation. A natural palette of materials includes recycled timber flooring and timber battens, black steel and clear finished cement sheet.
“The architects have skillfully created a loose fit internal environment and an atmosphere ideally suited to intense activity,” NZIA Awards Jury, 2001
