Gaze is the leading architectural design, project management, seismic strengthening, procurement and cost management company in NZ; 38 young, with dynamic teams and national and global reach.
Gaze moved quickly when the opportunity came to secure and relocate their Head Office to the heritage space - the infamous Rakino Bar in High Street.
The Gaze team wanted continuation of location in Central Auckland, close to clients and with various commuting options. They wanted their new Head Office to clearly showcase the Gaze brand, demonstrating the team’s capabilities and strong collaborative culture, whilst maintaining functionality and flexibility.
Gaze Head Office's open-plan layout embraces the post-war-era historical fittings, with multiple collaboration spaces. ‘The Carriage’, provides space the teams use to innovate and collaborate whilst ‘The Hangar’ is a fully equipped boardroom providing corporate space for formal meetings and presentations. A set of Daytona Arcade race-cars, the area wrapped in commissioned artwork by Mr G, places the finishing touches to the company’s home - one of the team’s favourite ways to take a break at the end of the day.
