The Kingslander had a loft space above it where the owners wanted to create a new bar. The opportunity was to create a bar which complemented their business downstairs –proudly a sports and music pub. We set out to create a bar that met the needs of patrons aged 20-45 who were tired of standard New Zealand bar behaviour, deciding that international, not local was the way to go. We celebrated the rest of the world, not ethnic tokenism, rather a contemporary expression of global. The intention was to play with the layout and to look for subtle references through patterning, art and furniture to international styles.
