The Lake Hayes Estate commercial building consists of a cafe, small bar, grocer, and 2 upstairs apartments/offices. It is currently run by Hamish and Jana Macpherson operating as Graze.
Deavoll Construction undertook all building work, including landscaping and most of the interior fit out. Michael Wells Design developed the overall design. Graze contracted Paul Izzard Design for their interior design, with Complete Construction manufacturing interior joinery.
The building is clad in a combination of cedar, schist, alpine tray and plaster. Interior finishings include recycled rimu, Decortech grooved ply, Muros wall panels, tiles, and a custom wall in herringbone wooden tiles. Eco features of the building include a fully insulated MAXraft slab, and a 9.2 kilowatt solar system installed on the roof.
The outside courtyard features a playground and large sandpit for kids built from Macrocarpa.
