Mantells On The Water

Formerly the old Pontoon, situated at Peer 21, Westhaven, this was a truly challenging space that lacked a formal front entry and needed to be refurbished throughout. It was important to create a venue that was a blank enough canvas that it could host a wedding or a corporate function, whilst keeping in line with the aesthetics that Mantells is known for. We did this by using feature drapery, which not only added dimension but flexibility and handmade wallpapers throughout, and commissioning murals and graphic art to help create interesting layers. All whilst being aware of budget constraints and what the site previously had to offer.

“Janice has helped us in four projects – Mantells Metropolis Apartment, Mantells Mt Eden, Mantells On The Water, and the refurbishment of a Luxury Harbour Cruiser. The work has been very varied from selection of carpets to designing canopies and awnings to fit with the various designs. Janice has been flexible and happy to temper our own ideas into the overall design. Her knowledge of fabrics that are easily accessible is a strong feature of her work. We recommend her and her work.”
