Megatower


Christchurch








"Standing proudly on a tiny, five-metre by five-metre site within the Merivale shopping precinct, where public toilets were once located, is a delightful and surprising vertical composition that challenges the way we use urban space and, indeed, how much space we actually need. This tower, cleverly crafted and sculpted to maximise usable space while still complying with city plan plot-ratio requirements, is a ‘Tardis’. It contains all the expected functions of accommodation, yet the inner workings have been cleverly interwoven and vertically stacked around a light-filled atrium void. Playful and thought provoking, this engaging piece of architecture clearly has a higher calling."
