    Toyota Botany

    Botany Toyota is part of a new auto hub development and a primary destination for prospective vehicle buyers in Auckland. The new dealership has been designed to accommodate the servicing needs of conventional petrol and diesel vehicles as well as advanced technology hybrid and electric vehicles.  The building has been designed to utilise passive heating/cooling and to accommodate solar panels. The facade needed to make a bold architectural statement.

    BRIEF

    The brief required a large geometric facade design. The purpose of the geometric mesh shapes was to border the glass panels to highlight and showcase Toyota's newly stocked vehicles, but also to create a unique building look that really draws in the eye when passing by the building. Insol were engaged on a design build basis to meet the Architectural intent.

    KEY CHALLENGES

    • The facade was comprised of triangular facets on different angles; every panel size was different and achieving straight lines was very important for the architectural design.
    • Fabrication and fixing of the facade to achieve the the high standard of finish was challenging. Many of the fixing details were bespoke and one-off.
    •  

    OUR APPROACH

    We evaluated the project based on installation methodology and precision measurements before coming up with a bespoke fixing system design.


    RESULT

    Our bespoke connection system was cost effective and fast to install.


    The result is a visually striking architecture that serves as a centre for the Botany auto hub.
