Good design is just as much about the use of materials and the way these contribute to the overall aesthetic as it is about functionality.

For the Panmure Interchange project, designed by Opus NZ, there was no compromise high-quality materials were specified throughout. These include the extensive use of honed basalt, supplied by SCE Stone & Design.

The basalt frames the entry, clads structural columns and barrier walls, wraps the walls of the lift shaft and forms a waterfall edge on the outdoor seating beside the bus lanes. The Opus design team says the basalt references the ancient lava flows from the volcanoes on the Auckland isthmus.
