The Orange Centre

The Orange Centre is multi-use commercial development proposed for Kerikeri in Northland. Located near the entrance to the township it is intended to create suitable gateway statement with an iconic building solely focused on tourism and the promotion of local products and celebrating local cultural heritage. As well as the trade centre the development incorporates a boutique hotel/conference centre and a service station.

As part of the resource consent application LA4 landscape architects prepared a comprehensive landscape master plan for the site to provide sensitive integration of the development into the rural setting and to create a tourism facility of high amenity and aesthetic appeal. The resultant design draws heavily on the established landscape character and heritage of the local area while successfully mitigating any potential effects locally.
