GameOn, Auckland

Architect/Designer: Wingate Architects  

GameOn Entertainment

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.
