Blockhouse Bay Library

Installation: Blockhouse Bay Library

Product: Net Effects & Urban Retreat with Online Poppy inserts

Architect: MAKE Architects

Libraries are continuously reinventing themselves from the keepers of the written word and knowledge through to a destination of choice of & for the community. Cafes are becoming part of the library, school holiday activity programmes are becoming larger and the actual décor and furniture/flooring are becoming very homely with a true residential feel.


The team at Auckland Council along with MAKE were keen that Blockhouse Bay should have a community facility that was a destination in its own right. And what a destination they created.


The flooring adopted lush pile product with colour and wayfinding. Utilising the Net Effect tile with the transition from froth to deep water adding a hint of energy and movement while the lush green from the urban retreat range provides an area of tranquillity while highlighting  a different zone.


Add to this;

  • 15 year full performance warranty (including castor chairs)

  • World leading dye-batch mergeable (less than 1% wastage on installation) patterns

  • Colour, texture,  and biophilic design utilising 100% recycled fishing nets in the yarn construction and the whole carpet tile being recyclable from NZ – No Auckland Landfill.

A  world leading flooring solution from a world leading supplier through a NZ leading operator to an exacting customer.
