Growth of the parliamentary buildings over time

Wellington's parliamentary complex expanded, with buildings added to, altered, pulled down and relocated. Extensions marked in green on this map were behind the original chambers (blue) along Sydney Street and were made between 1865 and 1870 to provide a bigger Bellamy's and a library. Then in the early 1870s substantial alterations and additions (orange) were made by architect William Clayton. In the early 1880s a new Bellamy's (red), designed by Thomas Turnbull, was built at the rear of the original wooden structure. Finally, the new library (mauve), completed in 1899, gave the buildings a smart frontage on Molesworth Street.
