We are delighted that Architectural Designer Pippin Wright-Stow of F3 Design has won the Commercial Interior Award for the Canterbury/Westland for work on our Moveable Workspace. It will go for consideration at the National Architectural Design Awards in late November 2020.
Designer Pippin Wright-Stow of F3 Design won a Canterbury/Westland Commercial/ Industrial Interiors Architectural Design award for his work on ‘The Green Lab’.
“‘The Green Lab’ is a moveable, multi-use space developed by F3 Design for a Christchurch not-for-profit organisation. The brief was to create a space that would become the flagship of the organisation. A communal hub, workshop space, classroom, site office and meeting space all in one.
It was essential for The Green Lab to be easily moved between sites for different community projects. Furthermore, the structure needed to be future proofed for potential sale or repurpose.
F3 Design created a ‘glorified garden shed’ aesthetic. The final structure is strong, safe, and practical, while retaining an attractive street appeal. Structural lifting points are integrated into the design for ease of transportation, ensuring the building will have a life beyond its current site.
Small but perfectly formed, this design stood out to the judges for the love and thought that had clearly been invested.” – Architectural Designers New Zealand
Variant Designer, and former Greening the Rubble Design and Construction Lead, Jonathan Hall conceived of the idea for a moveable workspace, and Jordan Hampson, The Green Lab Design and Construction Lead (2018- ), worked on the interior fit out for the workshop.
