Southern Cross Garden Bar and Restaurant

Abel Smith Street, Wellington

This work involved the re-configuration of an existing function room and bar space.

The space was re-organised to better relate to the main bar and garden spaces, the fit-out of which, converses with the remainder of the bar finished two years prior.

Two large copper clad walls slide away and connect the booth seating spaces to the fold out tables. Timber screens line the bar’s end wall and low level peg board ceilings contrast with a wide range of purpose-mixed colours.

Materials, construction details, and colours reminisce on the classic New Zealand caravan, complete with fold out tables, two toned and piped squabs, stripy materials, and a back lit fold out awning to cover the bar when not in use.

Furniture and fittings have been selected from the same era, although reflect more upon the lounge space. An assortment of furniture, lights and artwork was collected throughout the design and construction process, which complement the all important and quintessential Axminster carpet.

Colours used: Resene Bahama Blue, Resene Guardsman Red, Resene Limeade, Resene Rain Forest, Resene Royal Heath.

Products used: Resene decorative paints.
