Josephine Design engaged and worked alongside Shane and Luanne Cotton as artistic consultants to enhance and ensure the cultural and creative elements of The CAB and Civic Quarter were richly articulated. Major pieces of design work that were collaborated on included a one-of-a-kind carpet design throughout the common areas that tells the story of the Waihorotiu stream that flows underneath the area.
Josephine Design also embraced The CAB’s heritage with features such as recycled kauri in the lounge from the original auditorium and the original steel & aggregate staircase has been kept in a further nod to the modern international style of the building.
The entrance lobby has bespoke lighting and an impressive custom installation of glass birds by renowned NZ glass artist Luke Jacomb.
Josephine Design collaborated with renowned NZ Artist Shane Cotton on cultural story-telling – a one-of-a-kind carpet and signage design of the Waihorotiu stream that flows underneath the area. A true link to its cultural surroundings.
