Located on the ground floor of the historic Ferry Building on Auckland’s waterfront, the former iconic Cin Cin restaurant tenancy was gutted to make way for the Botswana Butchery restaurant and bar. The Good Group, who already had a Botswana Butchery restaurant established in Queenstown, wanted to bring a taste of the South Island to the heart of Auckland.
We worked closely with the client to create a space which provides a unique dining experience incorporating harbour views through the existing historic archways. By extending the existing mezzanine floor and providing a new central stair we increased the dining occupancy for the tenancy.
The Good group provided the final assortment of finishes, textures and colours you see throughout the fit out today.
Good Group Hospitality has utilised the services of Mike Hunter, the Auckland Office Manager of W J Cadzow & Associates Ltd, on numerous occasions. Specifically they have provided architectural and draughting services for large scale restaurant refurbishments and in particular the major projects of Botswana Butchery and Harbourside Ocean Bar Grill restaurants in the historic Ferry Building in Auckland. These projects were large and challenging and required good execution and having precise and accurate plans and specs was paramount to achieving the premium fun dining finished product we were after.
Mike is very easy to deal with and communicated well with all parties during the projects. He has the knack of being able to provide both specialist and practical advice relative to the important planning process.
