Te Pae | Convention Centre

The Christchurch City Convention Centre is a landmark building that will usher in the new era of conferences and gatherings in Ōtautahi

Te Pae | The Convention Centre building stands out as one of Christchurch’s  major feature projects, designed and constructed since the 2011 earthquakes.

Art Fetiche have had to privilege of assisting the artistic team at Ariki Creative to add some amazing detailed artwork into the paving around the centre.

The challenge

Part of this involved some vapour blasted forms in the paving inside the building. Our job was made all the more challenging in that by the time we got to do it most finishing had been complete and so we had to ensure the application had no impact on other finishings

The solution

With more and more experience under our belt, we know how to vapour blast under the most stringent conditions and leave everything else untouched. We pride ourselves not only on our finishing and detail but also our care with the sites we work on

The result

Te Pae already stands out with its distinctive roof lines and cladding, and while this commands attention, as it opens and people move through the facility they will be impressed by the depth of the graphics and design elements we have been a part of with Ariki Creative.

Art Fetiche worked over a period of time creating and installing art work finishing to the Bus Exchange
