Get inspired

The brief for this high-profile Auckland site was to increase how long people spend in the store and how much they spend – and we’re stoked to announce that our fit-out is working on both fronts.

Our client wanted to upgrade their existing souvenir store from its current dated design. People walk through this shop to go up the Sky Tower, one of Auckland’s icons. It’s a super high space – 6m – and previously the product on display looked disjointed and small. So the concept was to cover the high walls with other Auckland icons that can be spied from the top of the Sky Tower, to add interest and Disneyfy the space. We handpainted them monochromatically so that they didn’t become the hero of the store and overshadow the merchandise.

We also created some feature elements around the counter area where the more expensive items are sold. The quality of fixtures and fittings around the counter are a higher quality finish to reflect the goods being sold.The finishes, colours and design statements were selected to reflect the natural scenery that NZ is famous for, such as the natural timbers of our forests, the blues and greens of our lakes and the rich red of our coastal native, Pohutakawa.
