We got asked to travel to Fiji to design a Casual Dining Bure beside the pool at the Tanoa Hotel in Nadi. Its not every day we have to design something to withstand a cyclone but that was our brief.
We were asked to create an enclosed Bure with a full kitchen with a place to sit and dine or lean over and talk to the chef while watching him make your dinner.
We dealt with local trades and designed the Bure to have traditional finishes and to nestle it within the middle of the central pool area. It was successfully built and looks like it is at home where it sits.
