"Truly Memorable Landmark for Hamilton Central"

In 2015 Chow:Hill was shortlisted to take part in a limited design competition for the redevelopment of the Ferrybank site on Grantham Street in Hamilton, adjacent to the Waikato River.  The design brief, developed by Hamilton City Council, was based on the findings and recommendations contained in their Waikato River Plan completed in October 2014. 

Chow:Hill's submission inspired by organic forms and the typography of its riverside setting also engaged with the narrative of Tupuna - the connecting of the past with the future, this concept reflected in the physical linkages proposed by the scheme, in particular a footprint linking Hamilton East to the Central City. Our proposed development content, site landscape design,  building massing and architecture were purposefully aspirational. 

The future focus as proposed would have enabled Hamilton to create a truly memorable landmark for the city which would have been a reflection of the city’s growing confidence and reputation in the region as a vibrant and exciting place to live, work and visit.
