This project revitalised the respected & vibrant cultural institution with a thorough overhaul
A new wing forms a contemporary but contextual addition to the streetscape of Art Deco Napier, and provides a new entry with massive street presence on Napier's iconic Marine Parade.
HBMAG already occupied some of Napier's finest heritage buildings, and these have been restored in fabric and renewed in function to ensure their continued relevance into the future. The collection includes taonga of national significance.
The project will facilitate proper storage and care of the collection to international standards, and provide a series of stunning gallery spaces to show them off to great effect in both semi-permanent and temporary/touring exhibitions.
