Victoria University School of Architecture and Design, BAS 2013 - 2015 Victoria University School of Architecture and Design, Masters 2016 – 2018 Undertook a Summer Research Scholarship Summer 16/17 writing on Victoria’s Creative Capital, much of the work has gone on to be published online.

Presented at Place of Memory and Memory of Place Conference at Cambridge University, UK October 14 2017 on the Adaptive Reuse of Negatively Connotated Places. My main interest is in heritage design and the issues that surround bringing older buildings into modern use, the juxtaposition of memory and place-making and the way we integrate heritage into the urban fabric and our sense of place. I have a keen interest in interdisciplinary projects where multiple areas of expertise can be brought into play I really enjoy history and politics and how architecture can relate to these areas and this is what drew me to writing my thesis on the adaptive reuse of negatively connotated places and where a lot of my current knowledge lies.

Gemma Winstanley ARCI412 CUBA + Dixon Heritage Design

Cuba Heritage Hotel Complex

Concept The site of the Cuba Heritage Hotel Complex is situated on the corner of Cuba and Ghuznee streets in Central Wellington. The site currently encompasses the historic, heritage listed Barber building and two of the original Hotel Bristol buildings, all three buildings were built in the early 1900s. The buildings have been heritage listed due to their cultural contribution to the growth of the city and their classical Edwardian facades.The original Hotel Bristol building which was constructed from timber on the corner of Ghuznee and Cuba streets was demolished in the 70s and a single storey temporary building has taken its place. The Cuba Heritage Hotel Complex design is intended to be a multi-purpose, multiple facility community hub situated in the centre of the city, bringing attention to the distinct heritage aspects of the buildings existing on the site as well as the entire Cuba Heritage area. The complex will take on the qualities of the early-twentieth century inn where facilities were shared and people could get to know each other. Part of the approach to heritage in the design of this building was also considering the social and cultural heritage and how this manifests in a modern community. The approach to heritage in the design of this building, is to weave the old and the new together, both aesthetics and use, giving and taking from one another to create two parts of the buildings that are distinctly different but also share many similarities. This means that the new building will be visible even within the heritage buildings which will remain largely intact and aesthetics of the old building will be visible within the new. A large part of the concept will be opening up the buildings to the public to create different types of public space as well as the private space of the hotel. As a part of the hotel every room will be unique with a different layout speaking to the heritage of Cuba street. As well as the existing three heritage buildings which will now be joined together a new building mimicking the original mass of the Hotel Bristol building will be built in the corner with a timber frame and a two storey addition will be built over the top. The addition over the top will be stepped back from the street to respect the existing heritage building and the height and mass that make the Cuba Heritage area unique within the city whilst also adding density to the area and creating a more inclusive building made up of both public and private space.

Massing of the original buildings at ground level, reconstructed on the the site.

Construction of floating over top

Steel structure required for the new building running right down through old buildings to create a visual prompt to the new building and weaving the old and the new

addition

Massing of juxtaposition between old and new buildings

The building encourages interaction between the old and the new and even amounts of both public and private space

The Hotel has 30 rooms, each will be unique lending itself to the boutique aspect of the hotel. All the rooms are of various sizes with a long rectangular format that lends itself to a luxurious amount of space, with large bathrooms and suite-like living areas. All facilities for the hotel will be housed in the back separate building. Sitting rooms, libraries and a gym will also be situated throughout the hotel areas to supply communal bump spaces where people can socialise and spend time together

Our landscape is covered in the scars of history. A range of places, homes, sites and institutions that represent the legacy of a painful past: an involvement in war, massacre and genocide, racial discrimination, civil and political prisoners, or more benevolent confinement such as leper colonies and lunatic asylums. These places, which often walk the thin line between our constant need to remember and the overwhelming urge to forget, often invoke pain, shame guilt and ultimate futility of the events that occurred within them and the ideologies they represented. These places, defined in this thesis as negative heritage – conflictual sites that become the repository of negative memory in the collective imaginary , have become prolific the world over as we redefine what inheritance we to preserve in our landscape for current use and to pass on to future generations. What this suggests is, with the passing of time, what we consider as heritage can become highly malleable – shaped to fit the parameters of local or national value systems and perceptions of identity . The aim of this thesis is to pursue what political, cultural or social conditions attributed to these stigmatised spaces enables one site to be reused while another is condemned? What circumstances invoke such a passionate reaction to the fate of our built environment? When do buildings become so potent with memory that communities insist on their erasure? And how does this influence of collective memory and perception affect how we design for the possible reuse of these sites? The finding of this research will develop and inform a design process for the adaptive reuse of some of our most potent places of pain and shame by referencing the history of memory erasure and preservation in the architecture of Levin’s dilapidated Kimberley, once New Zealand’s largest state run institution. The former mental deficiency hospital, opened in 1945 and closed in 2006, and is currently under review by the government for its participation in the systematic abuse which occurred in our state institutions, while its buildings continue to fall into ruin. The architecturalising of various stages of the process of erasure on the site will allow the development of strategies for managing stigmatised spaces, where the tendency to obliterate traumatic sites, whether materially or psychologically – must be rationalised with the effort to frame architecture as a container of sets of events, a multifaceted collection of histories in context .
