The Blum building was a contemporary design and involved significant demolition at the end of an existing warehouse. We then constructed a new building within the existing envelope. Externally the building was constructed with various shape forms and internally a raft of finishes was used to create large open spaces.
Both Smith & Nephew and BSN were active tenants on the recently acquired Blum site. Blum engaged Williams’ Architects to design and document their new head office & showroom, and at the same time rationalise, revamp and fitout the tenancy’s of Smith & Nephews and BSN.
The result was an award winning building, wining both the NZIA Commercial Category and Property Council Best In Category.
