There is nothing better than the feeling of being outside in the midst of an urban environment. Pocket Bar and Kitchen offers a great version of this experience — an inspired combination of old and new, sandwiched between the old ASB Bank in Grey Lynn and the original bank vault. The brilliantly designed room features natural daylight, industrial styling, greenery and a PSP ClearVue Roof.
The client chose PSP's lightweight composite ClearVue roofing solution to turn a tiny, seemingly unusable space into a trending Auckland destination. Nearly a third of the entire extension is created using ClearVue Roofing atop a minimalist steel structure, resulting in a stunning airy space which came in under budget. A quirky touch is the wallpaper in the new bathroom spaces which link the restaurant and bar — created out of old banking documents discovered during the renovation.
ClearVue Roofing by PSP is New Zealand's only BRANZ appraised system of its kind. The system is versatile and well suited to commercial applications where a bespoke aesthetic is preferred, and importantly, it meets NZ's strict fire design requirements. The system allows for deflection and movement making it well suited to projects in earthquake prone areas, and it can be specifically designed to achieve a range of light transmission or solar control values.
