GARAMUT HARBOUR

PORT MORESBY, PNG

A significant land reclamation project in two stages. Stage 1 is a recently completed retail arcade with a large department store, supermarket andspecialty shops. The arcade is naturally lit from above via a lantern roof with continuous clerestory glazing.  Custom made pendant lights are suspended from the inverted ceiling and are in the shape of the Kundu Drum, an important indigenous instrument. The two generous arcade entries are marked with inverted yellow prism roof forms. The building is the first to utilise pre-cast concrete panel technology for some time in PNG.

Stage 2 will comprise a six storey building with office space, penthouse apartments and a ground floor entertainment precinct with restaurants, cinemas and a food court opening to a waterfront promenade.
