Auckland Council Henderson Civic
4WoRK Interior Design
The Auckland Council’s iconic Henderson Civic building location was reopened in mid-2022 after undertaking a comprehensive refurbishment led by the 4WoRK design team. Housed across three floors of the building are the Auckland Council’s Local Board, Customer Service Centre Tee Kawaerau a Maki offices, and also a bespoke workplace for Auckland Council staff.
The overall aim of our design was to ensure that the refurbished space was fit for purpose, reflecting the Council’s six guiding charter principles – honouring te Tiriti O Waitangi, providing a great place to work, protecting the people they serve, their money and assets, our information, and our community’s safety & wellbeing. It was our strong intention to be sympathetic to the existing architecture which features large, curved timber walls that surround the existing chambers and a bespoke broadloom carpet that had been commissioned for the building when it was constructed.
The result delivers on the design aspiration to provide an environment that looks to increase productivity and foster engagement among all who use the space.
