Evoking a feeling

FF&E procurement specialists Statement iD were involved in the Four Points by Sheraton Auckland project from its outset.

“We put initial budgets together, put a scheme together for the rooms, prepared documentation for the mock room, delivered three different mock rooms for sign off and then worked with the development team on placing the orders for the rest of the fit out,” said Tracy Cook-Kelland, director and owner of Statement iD.

After all the preparation and planning, Statement iD worked alongside Studio Design and Architecture on the restaurant, bar, reception and conference spaces.

For Statement iD it was vital that the project captured a distinctive New Zealand feel which they achieved by using New Zealand manufacturers and artists along with colours that complement the surrounding harbour views.

They worked alongside a wide range of New Zealand partners to develop and procure bespoke joinery, furniture, lighting, artwork and staff uniforms.

Statement iD also worked with the hotel’s management team to procure all the hotel operating equipment, including everything from housekeeping trolleys and cleaning equipment to crockery and cutlery in the restaurant.

Partnering with Studio Design and Architecture to design the public space, Statement iD helped to manufacture and procure all the items required, continuing the theme of partnering with New Zealand suppliers.

“The reception and public space are warm and inviting with small touches that remind you that you are in New Zealand. The rooftop bar, when it’s open, will be a real standout, the views are breath-taking.”

The building’s views of the Auckland landscape are not just a backdrop, it was also a key inspiration when selecting furniture and finishes in the rooms.

Recently, Statement iD has also worked on other notable projects like the Adina Hotel in Auckland and Breakfree on Cashel in Christchurch, with more on the way.

“We are currently working on a few new projects – a viaduct hotel, a hotel in Samoa and a new hotel in Queenstown.”

Statement iD’s mission is to find the unique pieces for every client to help them make a statement.
