We've been working with HainesAttract since not long after they began as Haines Recruitment Advertising way back in 1990. It all started with the first Wellington office design for Dave Wilson and his staff of 4. We've been alongside ever since - through 10 office moves and reconfigurations in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch. We've developed some great strategies for dealing with physical space changes along the way. It's quite a special relationship to us - we feel part of the family. HainesAttract are a creative company and encourage us to be creative with their environment - that's an added bonus for us.

we designed this services "spine" to carry air con, lighting, power and data for the open plan workstations - the result is that services reticulate to only where they need to be.
we designed this table to be the social hub of the office - and it is.

HainesAttract branding plays on the attraction theme - "dog/frisbee", "carrot/rabbit", "bee/flower". this water jet cut entry push plate design picks up on that.
