The Little Blackwood – Queenstown

This interior design project had a 6 week design phase and a 4 week build. We worked alongside the creative director Jason Whalley, by creating mood boards, sketches, tech drawings and samples to recreate our vision for the new space. The walls of the previously dated interior were stripped and lined with reclaimed Rimu Flooring, TG and V panelling, contrasted against the freshly painted Resene Cod Grey and Careera White panels. Butcher’s tiles and reclaimed Rimu flooring made up the fireplace and industrial lighting completed the overall aesthetic. We designed the leather banquet seating to fit and the tables were custom made in Blackwood timber paired with matt black powder coated steel bases – inspiring the bar’s new name. The indoor and outdoor furniture, back of bar steel shelving as well as the above bar matt steel black units were all made and fabricated in Raglan before being delivered to Queenstown from our Raglan workshop. The Little Blackwood is now one of Queenstown’s most lively day and night venues.
