Sitting on the water’s edge in Catalina Bay, this historic Sunderland Hangar building has been carefully restored and is now home to one of Auckland’s most exciting hospitality complexes. Ignite Architects partnered with Lion NZ to deliver the ‘spritiual home’ for brewers Little Creatures. The working brewery is described as a village, with ‘multiple food and beverage offerings that celebrate inclusiveness, community spirit, free thinking culture, and great beer!’.
The client and architect brief included the use of salvaged materials, consistency in reflecting the heritage of the site and creativity throughout all elements. For Harrows this meant sourcing and executing custom furniture options. The food hall features our Fero Leaners customized with reclaimed timber, as well as custom designed family sized tables, with hand-painted pops of colour to add to the vibrancy and authenticity of the space.
This impressive project has also achieved critical acclaim, being nominated as a Hospitality – Spatial Finalist in the Best Design Awards 2019.
