Yellow Tree House Restaurant


Warkworth, New Zealand


Pacific Environments


View Case Study - Created as part of an advertising campaign, the architects designed the concept which was nature-inspired; pod-shaped form which was reminiscent of a chrysalis protecting an emerging butterfly. With the architect’s drawings TimberLab (previously McIntosh) began the process of bringing the fins to life, creating a work of art which is the curved laminated timber ribs and the external walls of the restaurant. This is another example of the manufacturer helping to bring the designer’s concept to reality.
