Blum’s new architecturally designed Christchurch facility comprises a unique office environment, showroom, training workshop and warehouse hub to support Blum’s South Island distribution. It is a new home of storage inspiration in New Zealand.

Located at 16 Avenger Crescent, Wigram, the building features high-tech sustainable design and materials, aligned with company’s sustainability values. The new showroom presents moving ideas and concepts for innovative kitchen and cabinetry solutions. It also allows customers to experience their own storage story first-hand with a full-scale test kitchen.

The manufacturer of furniture fittings from Austria would like to show its South Island customers how creative interior design can be implemented with high-quality fittings—not only in kitchens and bathrooms but throughout the home.

Blum teamed up with Warren and Mahoney Architects—leaders in environmentally sustainable design—to develop the purpose-built property.

“Design decisions were focused on wellness and employee wellbeing, with plenty of natural light, outdoor areas to take time out, acoustic design that provides comfortable noise levels, and materials to complement the natural local environment,” explains Senior Associate, Simon Laurie.

“Architecturally, the design expresses a streamlined, finely tuned and engineered outcome closely aligned with the precision of products the building will deliver.

“The scale of the warehouse is broken up by a pitched frontage more representative of an urban scale, while the showroom is a splendid, double-height light-filled space that visually connects with the outside and features a cantilevered stair clad in blue steel. The finished building is testament to the effort put in by the whole design team, delivering a building that has sustainability at its core.”

The key sustainability features are geothermal heating, natural ventilation systems, solar photovoltaic panels, a water recycling system and charging station for electric cars. Future proofing was also important, allowing for business growth without multiple extensions.

“The architectural design matches our heirloom, but we also want to be relevant in the current business climate, supporting local businesses by hosting events, industry meetings, seminars and training workshops for architects, designers and cabinet makers,” says Michael Hawkins, Managing Director, Blum New Zealand.

One of the main objectives of the family-owned company is to work together with customers and partners to improve the quality of living for furniture buyers. Blum strives for beautiful, functional and long-lasting products based on findings from global research.
