SHOTOVER JET BASE
Location: QUEENSTOWN | NZ
Completed: CONCEPT

This building was designed as part of a selected competition, to replace the existing base building for Shotover Jet.

We looked at historic mining structures in the Otago area for inspiration, both in their original and derelict state. I liked the mechanical nature of them and thought that it worked in synergy with the Hamilton Jet and Shot Over Jet brands.

The corten steel building would appear to open and close with pulleys and hinges. You descend the building to a jetty to be collected by argo to transport you past the historic gold settlement, across the river bed to your jet-boat.
