Browns Bay New World
Client: Foodstuffs North Island
Location: Browns Bay, Auckland
Service: Project Management, Engineer to Contract
The Browns Bay New World is one of the latest of over twenty new supermarket projects that Pragmatix has delivered for Foodstuffs across the North Island.
The 1800sqm store replaces an existing supermarket that was on the site. The new store’s three distinctive gabled roof forms respond to the scale and form of surrounding retail area on Inverness Road and the guidance provided by the Urban Design Panel. The extensively glazed southern façade maximises daylight into the trading environment while providing a visually active façade that is inviting to customers approaching from the public parking area.
Working in close conjunction with Foodstuffs, the design consultants and the contractor, the team successfully delivered a bright and fresh retail environment that has made a significant contribution to the rejuvenation of the town centre.
