An icon back to former glory. A Bespoke roof for this iconic heritage building, combining traditional craftsmenship with modern techniques for an exceptional result at Christchurch's unique performing arts venue.

The heritage status of the Town Hall required us to think outside the box, Architectural Roofing’s Marcus Mariu said. “The lower Auditorium roof features hand made trays in a custom profile to replicate the original roof, while still bringing the performance benefit of modern techniques. This innovative approach of combining traditional methods with modern manufacturing was the key to deliver a high quality product.”

We are proud of the craftsmenship and attention to detail we brought to this project, shown impressivly on the new louvres. Installed next to the original ones, they show the contrast between new and old. This contrast will dissapear, as the louvres weather, a symbol of our work at the Town Hall – bringing it back to its former glory.
