Hunter Atrium

The Hunter Atrium is a new building sandwiched between two heritage buildings, The Hunter Building, and The Robert Stout Building. The concept is derived from a cranium or the opening of a book to become the entry point for the administrative arm of Te Herenga Waka, Victoria University of Wellington. Clad in zinc and large staggered glazing, the envelope accents the existing buildings on the site, while allowing for visibility of the heritage brick facades.
