A proposal for a commercial building in Rangiora:

This was a sketch proposal for a medium sized commercial building on High Street in Rangiora. This was for a corner site, and would have been a significant landmark. It was to be base isolated at first floor level, with precast concrete columns, arches and first floor window modules. There are only two different concrete window modules, and extra variety is achieved in the timber second floor and roofline. The building would be of red brick trimmed in concrete coloured by the local greywacke aggregate.
