Occupation is the best security. This hospital – closed since 2007 – has remained relatively untouched and unexplored due to the proximity of its replacement built directly next-door. Held for several years in a land banking holding pattern, the nearly five hectare property with its buildings was approved for sale in 2013 and sold for less than a quarter of its ‘capital value’ (a government estimate) the following year.
Located in Wellington is this dilapidated and abandoned former art gallery, before it was an art gallery it was some sort of industrial building that used a crane system, what a unique gallery this would have been. There was a safe and some other old trinkets from the past, that made us wonder of it’s previous uses, we hope you enjoy the shots!
Hiding down a Wellington side street lies this abandoned doctors clinic, declared ‘earthquake prone’ in 2012, the fate of this building is undecided.
Most things were stripped from this clinic but there was still the odd lamp and drug signs, this was a quick in and out explore, avoiding the sensors for the alarm.
