When Sustainable Design is Also Beautiful

The Mackelvie Street Retail project, located in the trendy Ponsonby area of Auckland, New Zealand, is a great example of the versatility of EQUITONE panels. The project, designed by RTA Studio, is a modern and stylish retail space that seamlessly blends into the surrounding urban landscape.

RTA Studio has created a visually stunning commercial space that blends seamlessly into the surrounding urban landscape of the trendy Ponsonby area in Auckland. The perforated exterior panels were used to create a dynamic and kinetic façade that plays with light and shadow. The result is a building that appears to change throughout the day and interacts with its environment in a playful way. Furthermore, the architects' use of varying panel sizes and shapes contributes to the visual interest of the building. The attention to detail and design principles employed by RTA Studio in this project has the power to inspire and influence other architects looking to create unique and contemporary commercial spaces.

In addition to its stunning façade, the Mackelvie Street Retail project showcases the versatility of fibre cement material. The panels were cut and shaped to create unique designs that enhance the building's aesthetic appeal. They were also used in a range of sizes and shapes, further adding to the visual interest of the building. The architects' attention to detail and use of materials highlights their commitment to sustainable design practices. Made with natural and raw materials, such as fibre cement, EQUITONE’s commitment to sustainability, combined with the durability and longevity of the structure, makes the Mackelvie Street Retail project an excellent example of innovative design and responsible construction practices. This project is a stunning example of how this versatile material can be used to create a modern and stylish commercial space.
