Home and Building, Volume 37 Number 6 (1975)

9: Mount Cook Air Terminal Building

9: Mount Cook Air Terminal Building

Architect: Trevor Ibbotson, Christchurch

Commending as a tourist facility, the citation says: "The design problems of establishing a functional building in the rugged and impressive setting of Mount Cook National Park has been handled sensitively and successfully."

The building serves both as a terminal and as a rest area, catering for both overseas visitors and New Zealands. The high, sloping, chalet-type roofline, designed to shed the large quantities of snow which fall in the area, is a focal point which relates to the surrounding hillsides.
