APEC Haus | Papua New Guinea
Conrad Gargett and Jim Fitzpatrick Architects collaborated on a civic and community project for the Government of Papua New Guinea. Jim Fitzpatrick was appointed as design director, having completed the concept design. Conrad Gargett was subsequently appointed as executive architect and interior designer, by Cardno on behalf of Oil Search for the design, documentation and delivery of the project.
Formally known as APEC Haus, the building is seen from PNG’s capital Port Moresby and was designed and constructed on reclaimed land extended as a peninsula into Walter Bay, connected to the Ela Beach foreshore which underwent a major redevelopment.
APEC Haus featured on the global stage in 2018 to host the 21 Pacific Rim member economies when they gathered for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) 2018 Leaders’ Summit. APEC Haus is an iconic design resembling a Lakatoi sail.
The design has considered the function of the building post-APEC 2018, creating a world-class space that will serve the people of Papua New Guinea into the future.
