Set on the coastal edge of Lyttelton Port, Canopy has worked closely with Athfield Architects to develop a series of welcoming outdoor amenity spaces for staff and visitors to the new Port Operations and Administration building. Landscaped spaces including an entry walkway, a rear lunch courtyard and BBQ space, picnic terrace and lawn. A new jetty extends out from the building providing seating opportunities at the waters edge. The spaces are linked together with extensive New Zealand native coastal planting. Designed in conjunction with Athfield Architects.
The urban courtyard for the Woolston Community Library facility in Christchurch blends brickwork, exposed steel beams and a timber canopy with feature pendant and catenary lighting. A raised corten steel and hardwood timber planter and seat is shaded by a specimen Japanese maple, which will mature to fill the courtyard space with dappled shade. The courtyard is connected by a new laneway to a rear car parking space.
