Te Arikinui Pullman Auckland Hotel design revealed
Auckland Airport and Tainui Group Holdings (TGH) have unveiled a stunning, uniquely New Zealand design for the new luxury Te Arikinui Pullman Auckland Airport Hotel, as part of a karakia service to celebrate the start of construction.
The joint venture partnership has worked with architects Warren and Mahoney to infuse unique Waikato-Tainui cultural elements into the design of the building, drawing heavily on the connection between land, sea and sky through the use of natural materials and light, while referencing our unique environment.
The project, managed by TSA team David Wilkie, Andrew McDonald, Kim Barrientos and Grant Thorlund, is part of Auckland Airport’s multi-billion-dollar infrastructure investment programme, which will transform the airport over the next two decades. This project alone will generate approximately 300 jobs during construction and will then employ 200 people once the hotel is open, according to Mark Thomson, Auckland Airport’s General Manager of Property.
