Earthquakes shook Christchurch in 2010 & 2011 and as a result the entire country has undergone a building review to determine the safety of any commercial building of 2 stories or more.
28 Tarbert street was a risk and its owners commissioned us to re-imagine the site.
The discussion began with consideration for the heritage of the area but quickly swung around to a perspective of moving forward.
The pitch was conceived as a napkin sketch and grew into a concept that fulfilled the clients commercial needs but also one that engaged the wider team which contributed to its success.
