Every step of the way our role is to listen, to learn and to embrace our client's vision, ensuring that our recommendations reflect their goals and objectives. Below is a small collection of some of our commercial work - we know it will inspire.
Bayswater Metlifecare Retirement Village
We recently completed a refurbishment of the communal facilities at Bayswater Retirement Village, Metlifecare, in Mount Maunganui, and we couldn't be happier with the results. The common living areas were transformed to feel like a resort and look amazing - exactly what we were trying to achieve for the residents.
Thanks to the Metlifecare team for being a pleasure to work with, as always.
Somervale Metlifecare Retirement Village
This project was a 69-bed care facility, plus 16 serviced apartment complex for Metlifecare at their Somervale Mt Maunganui site. This is the first of three new purpose-built care facilities to be built by Metlifecare in the Bay.
Urban Lounge Interiors provided a comprehensive design service for the interior which required specific eldercare specifications. Based on three colour themes to differentiate the six communal pods and bedroom wings, this included the purposeful use of imagery, colour, space and pattern for wayfinding. We also project managed the FF&E installation for this large complex.
We now look forward to working with Metlifecare on their next three projects – the new care facilities proposed for The Avenues and Papamoa Beach Village, and a renovation of the Papamoa Beach Village Pavilion.
Thanks to the Metlifecare team for being a pleasure to work with.
This involved a full design of the new reception and office area. The look and feel of the space was designed to create a busy, hustle-and-bustle feeling, along with that sense of excitement and adventure - much like the feeling of travelling. Interior Design is a vital aspect of the brand's image, we used careful planning and consideration to cater for this, as well as the practicality of the commercial space.
We are so proud of the final result, and working with You Travel was such a pleasure! If you're in the area, you are more than welcome to pop in and explore the many elements used to create this sensation.

Grace Hospital Cafe, Private Hospital
Cheyne Road, Pyes Pa, Tauranga
New cafe created in the hospital to serve patients, visitors and staff. The Cafe design was derived from the Italian Mutina Tiles which have been used on the splashback.
The overall design is intended to be uplifting, however we've used a contemporary mix of traditional colours and patterns to create a comfortable atmosphere for patients and families. The design of the cafe will have some influence on the long term refurbishment of the rest of the hospital and so colours, fabrics and designs have been carefully selected to ensure we are able to create a desirable atmosphere throughout.
