APEC Haus | Papua New Guinea

Quote:
In collaboration with Jim Fitzpatrick Architects (design architect and design director), Conrad Gargett has been commissioned for the documentation and delivery of APEC Haus, Leaders’ Conference Centre in Papua New Guinea.

Built on reclaimed land near Ela Beach in Port Moresby’s central business district, APEC Haus is an iconic design resembling a Lakatoi Sail. The interior design will also create a unique Papua New Guinea experience using a contemporary palette inspired by traditional materials of the region, shell, clay, timber and metal, to identify different functional spaces within the building.

It is envisaged that the purpose built convention centre will generate revenue after APEC, by hosting a gallery in addition to an upstairs function and conference space.
