University of Otago Science Divisional Offices

Otago University's Science Divisional Offices encompass a bold and innovative open plan space with a strong matauranga Māori narrative embedded within its design. The new, light-filled workspaces include multiple meeting areas to enhance collegiality and collaboration while maximising the use of space.

The design reflects Kāi Tahu raraka mātauraka (traditional weaving knowledge) that has connections to place and whakapapa (genealogy), while also referencing using the environment as a natural lab for scientific endeavour.

Featurecraft's Fire-rated MDF Battens were wrapped in a Rimu veneer, a sustainable way to use minimal wood whilst achieving a native Rimu look.
