Dulux Colour Awards Finalist: Duncan Cotterill Offices

At its Christchurch head office, Duncan Cotterill occupies three floors of the Clarendon Tower, enjoying iconic views of the Port Hills, Hagley Park, and Neil Dawson's nearby 'Chalice' in Cathedral Square.

Project Description:

Warren & Mahoney's brief was to create a professional, contemporary, and welcoming space for the firm to meet and entertain its clients. The space also needed to operate efficiently, with the reception area and meeting rooms providing flexibility for use as both function (formal and informal) and seminar spaces.

Creating a space that was friendly, that exuded confidence and integrity, and was classic while at the same time contemporary, were other key objectives with the design.

Walnut wall panels, Oak flooring and Calcutta marble - which envelop the visitor on entry - have been used to convey integrity, warmth and quality. A 'Paul Smith' runway of stripped goat's hair carpet orientates the visitor while creating a strong perspective to natural light and views over the city, and communicates a sartorial sense of humour not often associated with lawyers' offices.

New Zealand design is celebrated with David Moreland 'Frame' chairs, Candywhistle 'Pedro' stools, a Simon James 'Ash' leaner and Dulux Colours of New Zealand paint used throughout the office.

Duncan Cotterill is delighted with its new workplace, and the way in which the new environment is engaging both clients and staff with the business.
