Ontera Modular Carpets  recently supplied E-Scape, Colours with Attitude and Colourweave (custom) carpet tiles for installation at Telecom Place in Auckland, New Zealand.

Telecom Place consists of four low-rise buildings that are joined by a large central atrium which is designed to encourage occupants to move throughout the building horizontally rather than vertically. The entire complex covers approx 28,900m2 and has a capacity of 2700 people.

Each of the four connected buildings are assigned a colour identity:

  • Building A ‘The Purple Tower' employs a palette containing purples, magentas and pinks capturing the human connection of its customers and staff
  • Building B ‘The Blue Tower’ uses a series of tonal blues evoking the transforming and technological aspect of the business
  • Building C ‘The Green Tower’ mimics the Kiwi Spirit and New Zealand environment; and
  • Building D ‘The Yellow Tower’ captures the brightness of its people
A combination of base background carpet tiles with an assortment of custom-designed coloured feature carpet tiles, which were produced using Ontera’s unique dye injection process, were specified by Warren and Mahoney.

The building received a 5 Star Green Star - Office Design rating, and whilst the interior is not Green Star-rated, the materials and furnishings were all selected using best practice guidelines.

All Ontera carpet products are certified by ECNZ and/or achieve ACCS-ECS level 4.
