Wellington International Airport's southern extension to the main terminal building was officially opened by New Zealand’s Prime Minister, The Rt. Honourable John Key, on November 9.

The southern extension by Warren and Mahoney was designed to accommodate the increased passenger numbers in and out of Wellington City. Some of the main design features of the building include large scale custom laminated structural timber frames, fitted in a cross hatch style pattern running across the full length of the building and Ontera's vibrant custom designed carpet featured throughout the building’s interior.

Ontera in conjunction with Cato, a brand and design firm in Wellington developed a main carpet tile design connecting the overall floor layout, which works seamlessly together with the fun and vibrant carpet artwork features seen in different terminal areas throughout the building.

The vibrant rug style pieces are interpretations of Wellington city through the eyes of renowned local artists, Sam Broad, Timon Maxey, Rachael Gannaway and Catherine Griffiths.

Ontera had the challenge of executing each artwork into a carpet tile design layout. Each artwork was split into multiple individual carpet tile designs in a grid format, similar to a jigsaw puzzle. Each individual section of the design was then technically prepared by our design team based in Sydney and then dye injected at production stage also at our Sydney based facility in Northmead. The pieces were then carefully combined together to make up each larger artwork piece on installation.
