The CCM team enjoyed a bit of time out of the office to look around the Samoa High Commission site...
Construction is well underway in Wellington with the Samoa High Commission’s new Chancery building beautifully taking form.
Nestled in the heart of Wellington’s Kelburn district, CCM were given the unique privilege to design a replacement for the Samoa High Commission’s existing Chancery with an updated facility for their diplomatic operations, providing a platform to promote the culture and identity of Samoa to the wider community and visiting nations of the world.
Drawing inspiration from traditional motifs, myths and legends of Samoa’s rich history, the new design provides the opportunity for cultural expression, both inside and out.
Despite the challenges of a complex site, and not to mention some unprecedented global challenges along the way, the project team continues to work hard toward the completion of this important facility celebrating the beauty of Samoa and the pacific.
