Tait Cafe

Website

Our customised collection of upcycled native timber joinery elements complements the public atrium within Tait Communications.  Crafted from reclaimed native timbers from the Christchurch earthquake, we collaborated with steel and wood craftspeople to deliver this bespoke but cost-effective project.

 

Using recycled and locally sourced timber fitted the sustainability mandate from our client and strengthened the intended café food philosophy, to be locally sourced and nutritious. We designed an integrated café counter, bench seating, high tables and seated tables, all with the creative reuse or ‘upcycling’ of waste materials. Given the existing context – a mass timber building by another architect, this was a suitably modern contextual response.

 

Type: Commercial Cafe + Soft Fitout, Workplace Strategy

Client: Tait Communications

Team: Hamish Shaw, Andrea Burgos, Silvia Pisano
