THE CAPITAL GATEWAY
Master of Interior Architecture Thesis, 2018 This thesis analyses modern transport interchanges in the context of the current Wellington Railway Station, to then ask: How can interior architecture optimise the use function of a concourse within a transport interchange? As one of the largest transport interchanges in New Zealand, the Wellington Railway Station serves around 40,000 people everyday. Due to the projected population increase of around 50,000 by 2043, this of course will mean a further increase the number of people travelling each day via the railway station. The design in this thesis calls for a redeveloped ‘transfer hall’ or ‘main concourse’ area that strives to connect with other modes of transport and accommodate the fluctuation of both patronage numbers while also considering how the interior could
provoke a positive social interaction from the user. By doing so it is thought that the new interchange becomes a place to visit, rather than just a quick thoroughfare. The key aim of the thesis was to capture the current architectural expression of the station, to then convert it into a modern interchange.

INTA 312 Interior Architecture Design, 2015 By incoporating the ideas and beliefs of the established New Zealand owned clothing label â€˜Untouched Worldâ€™, this project aimed to create an interior that was fluid and enhanced the display of products. Located in the Wellington Airport the new store wraps around the main walkway between the international terminal area and the concourse. The framed store entrance helps to give potential customers a look into the store and entice them in.

THE BIKE SHED
INTA 411 Interior Architecture Design, 2016 Located near the Kuku stream and Otaki area, the bike shed was was offered as a way to entice people to the site while also respecting the land. The twisting kinetic form of the bike racking was driven by the direct movement of taking a bike from a wall mounted position to the ground. Working from an existing farm shed the design relied upon readapting the interior to successfully house and engage with activity within the bike shed.

THE WATERLOO HUB
INTA 412 Interior Architecture Design, 2016 The purpose of this project was to design a public â€˜hubâ€™ for travellers passing through the city of Wellington. Set below ground level, the hub offers a main street entrance while also connecting via the Wellington Station across the road. As the focus of this project was the public, the spaces designed were all largely places within the new hotel people could enter on from the street.
