Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa

90 minutes north of Christchurch Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa is a multimillion dollar, award-winning establishment, attracting more than half a million visitors annually.

First commissioned in 1999, r+m have always responded to the context and character of the Pools’ site and setting. As the Pools have developed and evolved over the years, r+m have worked closely with general manager Graeme Abbot on the long term planning for the site. 

r+m have prepared landscape and visual assessments and evidence for their expansion, and undertaken design work associated with different types of pools and active recreation. 

Their careful integration of modern facilities at the complex meets increased demands without compromising the unique environment.
