EntX Ground Floor Redevelopment

EntX Ground Floor Redevelopment

Tourism & Leisure

The EntX development in central Christchurch first opened in 2018 to much fanfare. However, during the pandemic, the ground floor food and beverage outlets struggled, so the building managers, Mackersy Property, envisioned a new concept; a multi faceted entertainment venue designed for operator Funlab.

Dalman Architects was in charge of integrating the new concept into the existing building. The studio’s architecture, interior design and graphics teams worked together with Funlab’s Australian designers to create the exciting new “Worlds of Fun” hospitality and leisure facility that is unique in Christchurch.

The overall theme is “the best place to unleash your inner kid-ult”, and features eight lanes of ten pin bowling, two nine hole mini golf courses, the very latest in electronic and virtual reality games, bars, dining and function rooms with karaoke… essentially, a world of “funtainment” for all patrons.

A major feature of the ground floor atrium is the new glass lift that allows for ease of access up to the movie theatre level, much improving the connection between the floors.

Dalman Architects also designed The Diversity dining tenancy with a contemporary interior that balances a restrained palette of colours, bamboo and plants, with a full wall mural by a local street artist.
