Designed to move seamlessly from cafe and function spaces by day, to a bar and restaurant by night, Pod was a standout modern addition to Wellington’s restaurant scene in the mid-2000s.

Working alongside Studio Pacific Architecture, architects for the building, we created a contemporary urban restaurant with every element carefully researched and detailed. A sculptural floating ceiling above and a dark resin floor below gave a sense of drama. Large glass windows allowed diners to watch the city going by and for passers-by to observe the restaurant theatre within.
