The Situation

O'Connell's Pavilion is a unique and striking building that sits on a steep site overlooking Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown. The shopping mall began as a meeting place for gold miners, transitioned into a hotel, and eventually became the resort's first major shopping centre in 1988.

The building underwent a redevelopment, designed by McAuliffe Stevens Architects, featuring an exceptional design, eye-catching copper cladding and a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains.
