When Anna Gallagher from Wingate Architects took on the project
of designing the new Gameon centre in Auckland she saw the
opportunity to elaborate on the playfulness and digital elements of
the arcade environment.
The client brief was to design something funky and functional
that would suit the semi-industrial space with exposed ceilings and
pillars. It was also important that the flooring be able to
withstand high foot traffic and not show stains.
A range of Shaw carpet tiles were used. The basis of the
design was Shaw Virtual spaces collection, Augment Energise and
Vibe with pops of colour from the Color Frame collection. The
Shaw Virtual spaces was used here due to it's inherent stain
resistance, while the bright colours brought in the playfulness but
also promoted wayfinding, allowing patrons to discover and explore
the games arena throughout the arcade.
"We selected the Jacobsen range due to their reliable reputation
and suitable selection of products and colours that reflected our
intentions of design and durability," said Anna Gallagher.
The specification was completed with Tredsafe stairnosing
including the new curved stairnosing.
