Planar Mosaic is Centerpiece of New Zealand's First Living Building

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Tūhoe is a proud community of indigenous New Zealanders intent on cementing its identity as a people focused on a positive, distinctive future. Tūhoe has begun to establish a bold new identity, starting with the construction of a new headquarters building for the community: Te Uru Taumatua, New Zealand’s first Living Building. The facility houses all the staff of the Tūhoe community leadership. In addition, it includes a library and a cafe and provides space for community meetings and cultural events. Architecturally, Te Uru Taumatua is designed to make an unmistakable first impression, an objective that is met on many levels, including the display technology provided by Planar Systems, an advanced video wall that greets all who enter through the main lobby.

The building was designed by architectural and design firm Jasmax, whose New Zealand offices are in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Tauranga. To maximize the impact of the building, the design firm Law Creative Group was engaged to manage creative inputs and the firm suggested a high impact, high-tech first impression. International award-winning, interactive media company Click Suite, based in Wellington, helped bring the Tūhoe tribe’s dream of a central cultural community center to fruition. Click Suite commissioned and installed the Planar Mosaic video wall in the building’s main lobby as a focal centerpiece. “Planar Mosaic is a tool with which we can inspire community but also convey our commitment to innovation,” says Kirsti Luke, chief executive, Tūhoe. “Putting this advanced video wall in the main lobby of what we believe is an iconic building sets a powerful first impression and indeed says that we are true to both goals.” Read more.
