Hamilton Airport

The Pekapeka – New Zealand’s endangered long-tailed bat – inspired Hamilton Kirikiriroa Airport’s new branding and terminal refurbishment into a welcoming gateway between worlds for travellers.

Once described as “soul-less” and “uninviting”, the 88-year-old terminal is now a modern, light and art-filled space offering a calm, seamless experience for an estimated 800,000 visitors annually.

Our street furniture specialists worked with the Hamilton Airport team to customise our NZ-made Legend Collection to mirror the tones and textures of the terminal façade, and maximise the functionality of the outside spaces.

The durable alloy frames of our hardwood timber Legend Straight Benches feature the airport’s twin pillar motif, which represents the runway, notches marking the beginning and ending of the journey, and a subtle ‘H’ for Hamilton.

Customised with the airport logo, the feature 90L rectangular bins which encourage recycling and clean, pleasant public spaces. The TimberImage™ doors have the natural warm look and feel of timber, with the durability and easy clean of aluminium.

Modular design at its finest, the Legend Collection can be configured in a myriad of ways, and fashioned to suit every space and purpose.
