A former retail space turned into a coffee shop, removing all unnecessary elements of the interior, exposing its concrete ceiling, walls, beams and columns
Fearon Hay Architects have revitalized ‘the imperial buildings’ in downtown Auckland, New Zealand. The design now provides five levels of bars, dining along commercial office and retail spaces, creating a new hub for socialisation.

"Nomad is a restaurant serving exclusively local and Australian produce. Our design solution stretches from brand through to interior and signage, and employs a raw and natural aesthetic that is sympathetic to the restaurant’s culinary approach. One of the features of the interior design is a commissioned art piece from CJ Hendry an emerging young artist based in Brisbane. CJ is renowned for intricate photorealist still life pen drawings. The logo is a deliberate reference to the free-spirited nature of a Nomad with letters drifting from their original place.”
Maud creates provocative design that builds brands and businesses. Our approach is honest, driven by human insight and always starts with brand strategy. We’re multi-disciplinary team of thinkers who place function before aesthetic and work to create enduring design solutions that connect with people.
World’s best restaurant yet again……
