Customs-Charter House, The East Building and Takutai Square are the first completed components of the Britomart redevelopment in Auckland, New Zealand. They give tangible evidence to the masterplan vision to revitalise this historic harbour-front Precinct by integrating public transport infrastructure and reconnecting with the city. The new buildings are informed by their heritage context and create a network of carefully scaled and connected civic spaces designed for a range of public and community uses. This integrated development is activated by cafes, bars and retail activities at ground floor to create an essentially pedestrian, vital and safe public domain.
