McDonald's Britomart

McDonald's Britomart

Auckland

2011

Located opposite the Britomart Transport centre in downtown Auckland, McDonald's Britomart opened just prior to the 2011 Rugby World Cup. A prominent corner site is now home to this new restaurant.

This outlet incorporates a McDonald's restaurant and McCafe facing Queen Street.

The project looked to open-up glazing to the corner site allowing better passive surveillance to this popular night time spot.

Externally McDonald's traditional red gave way to a black ribbon on the fascia in response to the adjacent historic buildings in the Britomart precinct.

The interior decor includes a neutral architectural background of materials overlaid with the bold use of vivid colours in a relatively small area. Lighting was also a key component for this location.
