Daily Bread - Heritage Icon Transformation - Point Chevalier, Auckland

The design transformation of Point Chevalier's iconic bank building into a working commercial kitchen and dining space. The neo-classical design, which was one of the many buildings commissioned by the Auckland Savings Bank from the architect Daniel B. Patterson in the 1930's, closed its doors to the public in 2016 and required a complete facility overhaul and structural upgrade, in order to change the historical space into a functioning commercial kitchen. A lot of special considerations and sensitives came into play with the design. With a focus on honouring the original features, while meeting all the codes and requirements of a modern build. Custom made steel joinery opening up into an outdoor dining area, Italian marble benches and restored wood paneling pay homage to the neo-classical design - with the final vision being a harmonious balance of wabi- sabi and utilitarian design aesthetics. Completed in early 2018. ⟵ Back to index
