Husband and wife duo Isaac and Beck Lindesay want to break down the walls when it comes to adventurous architecture. In partnership with Squarespace….



Having originally met in a shared office space, when a spot came up in a nearby building, Havelock North residents Emma Lindsay and Amy and Tim Gillespie seized the opportunity to create a coworking destination of their own, which they’ve called Joll Commons. We got the goss from strategic sales manager Emma. So Emma, what attracted you guys to this site and who was involved in transforming it? The site is elevated and gets amazing natural light, which is something everyone comments on when they first walk in. Our clients also love the central location among great coffee shops,
In association with Kayu Studio. More than just buying stuff you think you should have, creating a home you absolutely love comes from gradually collecting pieces that reflect your values and enhance your way of life. When that lifestyle includes being rushed off your feet, you’ve gotta love a one-stop shop, and there’s one in Mt Maunganui at which you can stop, shop and stay. To walk into Kayu Studio is to deeply exhale. A palpably tranquil, must-visit destination for furniture, homeware, lighting and textiles inspired by laidback living, it was founded by Mount local James Mitchell, who followed
In association with Untouched World. No less than the first fashion company in the world to be recognised by the United Nations for its efforts in sustainability, and given permission by UNESCO to carry the UNDESD (United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development) logo on its labels, New Zealand’s Untouched World isn’t one to do things by halves. On learning it’s given its flagship Ōtautahi/Christchurch store an update, we wanted to know more. Creative director Lucinda Le Heron was the woman to ask.

Step one on the road to running Emma Hayes Textiles saw its talented founder graduating from Unitec with a Bachelor of Design majoring in visual communications, before working in graphic design and advertising in Aotearoa and the UK. On returning home from overseas, she was given the chance to design fabric for fashion label Cybèle and later other brands, which spurred a love of seeing a design come to life on a tactile surface. Interiors seemed like the next natural step. She set up her own studio in 2011, began creating art prints, cushions and silk throws, and eventually
German-born Elena Renker was into pottery from the moment she was introduced to it by a wonderful craft teacher as a child. She later made plans  to spend a year working in a pottery  in the village of Bergen in Germany’s Bavaria, but before she did so, took  up an invitation from a friend to spend three months at India’s Golden Bridge Pottery. She had an amazing time, and for someone who’d always enjoyed making functional, everyday objects,  it planted a seed. The year in Bergen followed, before she moved to Bavaria’s capital, Munich, to study graphic design, got
Kiwis Kelly and Josh Müller met in Tauranga, relocated to Sydney, then — craving a slower pace for their young family — settled in Lennox Head in northern NSW. Although they initially landed in this small coastal town because  they couldn’t find an affordable rental elsewhere, Kelly says it turned out to be the biggest blessing.
