623 On The Rocks

Located on the ground floor of the ‘Sands’ development in Tahunanui, ‘623 on the Rocks’ was created. The client wanted to create something sophisticated but casual, to reflect the location at the head of the beach.

The spatial planning of the bar, chiller, kitchen and toilets was key to creating a welcoming environment and keeping the remainder of the space free to allow the seating options to be changes easily. Large floor tiles lead into a concrete masonry block bar wall, coloured to reflect the shades of sand create an obvious first point of contact for new patrons.
