Woollen Mills is a definitive, bold response to a location steeped in history and embedded in the hearts of generations of New Zealanders.
The complex blends old and new, combining the existing heritage listed structure with a heroic modern profile of concrete, glass and steel.
JWA Architects — known for their collaborative partnerships and strong focus on innovation and buildability — have taken a sensitive yet modern approach to the historic site.
A bold skyline pays homage to the site’s roots with a sawtooth roof that references the original Victorian factory silhouette, brought into the present with dramatised angles for a strong road presence.

Quality and design flair are evident everywhere in the new buildings, from the sturdy steel canopies, steel front gate and stylish concrete exterior.
Tall ceilings with full height glazing and open floor plates transform the warehouses into light-filled workspaces, making them suitable for both Business to Business and consumer-facing operations.
Flexibility and Choice
Woollen Mills has 26 warehouses on offer in a variety of sizes ranging from 350sqm to 1000sqm, to suit all manner of businesses. All sites include a warehouse and office, while the road facing sites include large floor to ceiling windows for increased road visibility and exterior signage options.
Designed for Business
Designed with the needs of its occupants in mind, every warehouse features large roller doors, wide internal roading for easy truck manoeuvres, clear wayfinding signage and plenty of car parks. As well as the front entrance, Woollen Mills includes an additional five access points from three roads to aid the pick-up and delivery of goods.
