Commissioned to refurbish and completely re-design the previous highly successful gallery, completed in 1995 the company developed broader themes and objectives in this new design, allowing local natural history to be situated within the context of a wider world.

This unusually long gallery set in the Auckland Museum is on 3 levels and allows for a complex dimension to differing visitor engagement. It is set up into 5 interrelated but distinct natural history themes –
the ‘Subterranean’,
  ‘Living Layers’,
  the local ‘Auckland Isthmus’,
  the ‘Blue Seas’
  and the ‘Observatory
each having a distinct architectural identity.

Binding these areas is a ‘spine’ of indigenous Maori themes based around the concept of water - 'wai' - in its many different states.
