This is Little Meg, a collaboration with Warren and Mahoney Architects for Cardrona Alpine Resort.
She's a 40ft recycled container clad in sustainable South Island timber in a rhythmic, alpine inspired pattern, serving hot coffee and offering guests WC facilities.

Piha Cafe invited me to come up with a furniture solution for their new terrace. Macrocarpa had already been used on the existing building, and the eclectic interior paved the way for a relaxed atmosphere on the terrace. We used Macrocarpa for all the bench seating, the little stools and custom table tops. We re-used the large community table to tie the existing in with the new. White chairs arrived after this photo was taken, as well as some white and blue cushions along the bench seat. Just in time for summer!
An interior fitout and landscaping solution for a series of containers at the Vector Wero Whitewater Rafting facility in Manukau.
The Sunset Bar is one of Coronas latest spiritual homes at the Vector Wero Whitewater Rafting Park.
I designed and project managed this fitout which saw two shipping containers joined and converted into a bar with a roof terrace.
Careful material selection and a raw, paired back aesthetic was used to evoke the laid back, inclusive and social nature of this beloved brand.
Pale blonde South Island Cypress was used to make the inside of the container feel warm and inviting (and smell amazing).
Galvanized pipes were powdercoated yellow and fitted with exposed light bulbs, picking up on the industrial environment as well as an abstract and playful nod to the brand colours.
Pallets were used to make seats, and we sandblasted the paint off the interior paneling of the container to create a bit more atmosphere and texture.
I designed all the furniture for the project and teamed up with Rollercoaster for the build.
