Ignite Architects   Hoyts Te Awa is a 6-auditoria cinema development designed as part of level 1 of a new build enclosed shopping mall (Te Awa), on The Base shopping centre site at Te Rapa, Hamilton, New Zealand.  Hoyts’ clearly communicated intention was that this development would be a prototype in a new paradigm of cinema experience that, if successful, would be rolled out across all new Hoyts developments.  It was the first fully 3D, fully digital cinema centre in New Zealand.   The cinema has been operating successfully since its opening in August 2011, and subsequent designs were commissioned (Centre Place & Chadstone).  I was involved from 2008 to 2012, and my role was Project Architect and Project BIM Leader, from concept through to defects liability. I ran a team of 4 to 14 staff during the course of the project. The documentation set is now used as an office exemplar.  After completing this project, I assisted other project teams to advise on / design the cinema layouts for four other cinema complexes in New Zealand, Australia, and China.
