The Crawford Street Development is the first stage of a three stage project which focuses on the design of a new Façade, Entry and First Floor Fitout to the existing buildings for Oakwood Properties at 123 Crawford Street Dunedin. The Clients brief suggested the need for a new flagship building for the family run business that encompassed a modern high tech image. Our Response to the brief was to form a new dramatic incursion that announced entry and opened up the vertical nature of getting access to the first floor. The stair pushed to the front was to promote physical movement through the space and make an interesting play of motion through the space. The vertical timber fins were to dramatise the space further giving depth and shadow play through the day.
