Rigorous functions, relationships and the requirements to create a pleasant environment presented a challenge to Stiles and Hooker to provide the Client, Fertility Associates, with their new Hamilton and Wellington offices.

This aspect was approached using a careful selection of natural timbers and a mild, neutral colour palette to finishes for both projects.
