The Auckland Museum is one of Auckland’s most loved taonga. Elocker approached the Museum in 2018 to discuss how lockers could enhance the visitor experience, increase security, add a revenue stream for this local body entity and free up frontline teams to interact with visitors more.
The Museum has two separate entries – the Grand Foyer at the northern end of the Museum and main entrance at the South Atrium. The latter was being refurbished, so our lockers needed to feature in the architect’s planning. The Grand Foyer was converting an existing area into locker space in a high traffic area next to the cafe and bathrooms. So having a highly aesthetic solution was paramount in our thinking.
But then Covid hit New Zealand.
