Riddiford Street Medical Centre
Newtown, Wellington, NZ
Located within the heritage character area of Newtown, this project is conceived of as two historical 'bookends' which mimic the existing street texture with a contemporary 'bridge' forming a link between. The ground floor contains a retail space on the Riddiford Street boundary whilst the first and second floors house minor procedure and consulting rooms. Two full height light wells on the Northern boundary allow natural light to permeate through the building and create inner sanctums for visiting patients and staff alike. This project was designed and documented by Melling:Morse Architects with tender and construction observation being carried out by Melling Architects.
