North Harbour Hockey Centre Interiors
North Harbour Hockey were required to relocate due to SH1 motorway updates. The move offered an opportunity to rationalise facilities, facilitate future growth, and meet International Hockey Federation (FIH) Global Elite standards for hosting international events.
Pou Whenua are located on the approach to the site, signifying the meeting of mana whenua and hockey in the common pursuit of serving the wider community. The new clubroom with its distinctive bold, muscular roofline creates a central hub for athletes, spectators, and events. Split entry allows athletes access to ground floor changing facilities, while the main stairs lead to a north viewing deck for spectators. Multifunctional interior spaces are designed to adapt, enabling capacity for the club to host seminars and events.
The clubroom room building was constructed concurrently with the pitch-forming works, which required thorough construction planning to sequence the overlapping construction works.
The robust concrete and block construction of the ground floor creates spacious yet utilitarian changing facilities. First floor construction includes steel portal frames to support the shaped roof, providing centreline camera and commentary positions, as well as curtainwall glazing for game play viewing.
