Westermans Building Restoration, Hastings

This building is one of the most prominent Art Deco buildings in Hawkes Bay – a real landmark on the corner of Heretaunga and Russell Streets. Fat Parrot worked on this project over a period of several years, first restoring the ground floor and fitting it out as the new i-site shop. A few years later, we restored and fitted the upper level out as executive offices for a lawyers firm and a Charity Trust. This involved recreating some of the intricate woodwork and joinery, light fittings, plaster mouldings, signage, cabinetry, etc. to match the existing finishes and fittings Fat Parrot was awarded a Commendation by the Art Deco Trust in 2002 and 2004 for this project.
