Woolshed, Ayrburn



Queenstown, New Zealand





Ayrburn is a multi-outlet hospitality precinct distributed across 30 acres of historic land in Queenstown’s Arrowtown. It is the retelling of the site's story through our lens, pieced together through the artefacts and pieces of literature sourced through our design journey. 

The Woolshed contains the main dining stand of the venue’s first opening phase, a dispense bar and lounge, an upper floor loft and member’s bar. Made from local schist stone, with the historic woolshed floor boards refurbished and reinstated, a central steel clad fireplace, rough oak ceiling linings, repurposed corrugated steel and a collection of harvested and repurposed timber claddings along with a cobbled timber floor in the bar area. 

The dining stand trades from breakfast through to dinner and overlooks the now reconstructed river which is flanked externally by large stone and steel fireplaces with external terrace furniture. It is a chalet style reimagining of a bistro, with moss green velours and burgundy leathers, replete with artwork and signature furnishings.
