South Loft

Above Auckland's Queen Street, in the roof of the Imperial Building is South Loft. This is a library-like occupation for an office of Economists. A glazed private meeting space sits between cabinetry sheathed with a fine wire mesh and blackened steel. Natural light is admitted through the timbered roof structure and historic facade.
