Wynyard Quarter Smart

May 2015

Panuku Development Auckland

Our task was a difficult one, we needed to bring Wynyard Quarter’s sustainability goals to life and inspire building owners, tenants and visitors to join and track their progress.

Idea

We devised an engaging, explorative and virtual user experience coupled with infographic style data that grows alongside the sustainability movement.

Every aspect was created to educate, inspire and communicate what it means to be truly sustainable.

Execution

Wynyard Quarter Smart is our way to share progress on the path to implemented sustainability and engage a wide audience along the way. 

We had to create something that grows over time – after all, the client’s vision is to lead sustainable urban transformation and renewal in Auckland and across New Zealand. Not a quick, simple or finite task. 

So with innovative new web browser technology, we created a virtual environment that users can explore and get access to continuously evolving data streaming from Wynyard Quarter. 

Every aspect was created to educate, inspire and communicate what it means to be truly sustainable.

A ‘smart console’ will also track live data measured over the coming years.

A RICH AND ENGAGING SITE WITH COMPELLING DATA

Verdict

The site is compelling, whether it’s viewed on mobile, tablet or desktop. Its platform transforms complex data sets into digestible information that engages with a broad audience ranging from invested stakeholders and local council, to future Wynyard Quarter residents and the general public at large.

As Wynyard Quarter continues to grow and develop over time, the richness of data collected on the website will track along with it.
