The University of Auckland, Fale Pasifika, Auckland/New Zealand

High Ceilings

The Fale Pasifika is a place where people gather as a community for ceremonies, a place for dialogue, for teaching and learning about the islands of the Pacific.

The challenge was to construct a building that represented the shape and function of a traditional Fale while also meeting the structural criteria of the NZ building code and providing protection from the Auckland climate.

EnergoStrip fulfilled the requirements for the heating system! Here the type EE24 was mounted at 4 m height and coated in a black colour to blend into the environment. In total 48 kW.
