Great South Road Motel

Project Description

The Great South Road motel is a 2 level 18 unit room motel situated on Great South Road, Papakura.  The motel is comprised of two blocks of motel units to the west and northern part of the site. Each block is differentiated for each other with variances in form and material to create a separate identity.
Each motel room has a deck or balcony to the north or the west. Access to the upper levels is via stairs between the pairs of blocks to create a rhythm to the facade and massing of the development.​
The design explores the possibilities of a limited budget through careful planning and the deployment of fenestration and materials to create a variegated whole.
The materials are rendered brick to the lower levels with profiled metal cladding to the first floor level and roof. The landscaping comprises of a mix of textured exposed aggregate concrete, timber decking and soft planting.
