Located at the north end of Te Rapa’s industrial precinct, only a short car ride from The Base Shopping Centre, is Ebbett Group HQ. The goal of the massive 25,000sqm site was to unify Ebbett Group’s key service teams: sales, marketing, repairs, service, technical and financial.
A long-term collaborative partnership between Chow:Hill Architects and Ebbett Group had seen the architectural practice design Ebbett’s Hamilton East Volkswagen dealership. The concept, which flipped the traditional car dealership model on its head, maximised the prominent corner site to create a shop front window display and café. However, for Ebbett’s Gateway project, a more traditional format was required.
