Shotover Jet Queenstown

Using a selected tender process, Shotover Jet wanted to replace their existing administration centre with an’ icon’ building to attract tourists from around the world, a building with better operational flows, with an emphasis on pre-and post-jetboat experience and with provision for more revenue oriented opportunity around jet boating. The proposal, one of the two preferred schemes, achieved the complex design brief on a magnificent promontory site around which the Shotover river winds its way down to the Kawerau river then to the mighty Clutha river.

The upturned roof tips to acknowledge the mountainside forces around the promontory site. Its underside, viewed from the river below, is furrowed like the bottom of a jet boat, to grip the water.
