Project Overview

Kings Plant Barn set out to become the New Zealand’s most sustainable garden centre and wanted their new building to fully incorporate solar panels.

Sunergise worked closely with Cheshire architects during the design phase to provide a visually appealing solar exoskeleton that meets all building and electrical code requirements.

This revolutionary bespoke implementation integrated the solar panels into the design to give a sleek profile, requiring design solutions that were the first of their kind in the country. Select panels were placed purely for aesthetic reasons and mixed energy production with design considerations with a balanced, elegant approach. Door and window widths were based on individual panel widths.
