• Our First New Build

    We worked with John Irving on our first new build by the beach in Oakura...A modern take on what it is to live by the sea. Minimal fuss, clean lines and thoughtful touch points throughout.

  • Tahi Space

    A modern healing space in New Plymouth. This space was completed with an ethos based on mother earth and the elements. The interior needed to reflect a strong connection to nature to allow for the transformation of mental, physical and spiritual work. It also references back to the original features of the building. We hope that clients feel a sense of nurturing, wonder, balance and potential.

  • Morley Street Bungalow Renovation

    ''Interior designer Thandi Tipene’s professional understanding of interior space and light meant that when she was viewing potential homes to purchase in New Plymouth, a small, dark cottage with limited sun was not a negative attribute, but merely a golden opportunity.

    The home’s quaint cottage style character was forefront of mind, but with a determination to modernise the home for family life, Thandi and her husband, Bachelor embarked on a renovation which saw the interior layout and style change dramatically.

    “We bought this as an original 1930s bungalow on a small site with no sun. The biggest decision for most people would be: How do we maintain the character of the home?”

    Although modernised with an entirely new layout and a soft white canvas throughout, the character has been retained via the exterior weatherboard features, as well as interior heritage fixtures such as original bungalow doors.'' Tina Stephen
