Case Study
Auckland, New Zealand


Rufus Knight in collaboration with Sonja Hawkins

In collaboration with Sonja Hawkins Design, Rufus Knight worked with owners Josh & Helen Emett to create a dining space marked by intimacy and sophistication.

Referencing the traditional elegance of the building's history as the 'Grand Hotel' of Auckland, taking timeless materiality, and employing contemporary habitation, their generous use of rich tones set the scene for one of Auckland's most notable dining experiences.
