The Situation

Nuralite’s Nuratherm Warm Roof System is the perfect solution to achieve 1-degree roof falls, while delivering high performing insulation. Specifically designed for low pitch roofs, our CodeMark certified Warm Roof System complies with the new H1 standards, and has been specified on a multitude of projects with an extensive in-service history of use throughout New Zealand.  

Te Manawa - Westgate Library and Multi-Purpose Facility by Warren and Mahoney Architects was a great example of how our low-pitched roofing system can enable designers to maximise internal stud height and interior space, while minimising the overall building height.

Situated in Westgate, Te Manawa was created to be the community hub and heart of this new commercial destination. Heralded as a space for visitors to explore, learn and play, the brief was create a innovative functional living space that could be multi-purpose, rather than a more traditional library.

With three levels and a double height atrium, the architects wanted Te Manawa to capture natural light and see the project become a benchmark in terms of its design features and use.
