Architecture Studio was engaged to design a new commercial building for Stihl Shop, located in Northwood, Christchurch, the original site of Anthony Shearer trade merchants on Main North Road. Due to the high volume of traffic movement into the City it was important to maximise the shopfront glazing for product display and create a lawn area for their ride-on lawn mowers. The concrete floors were polished for maintenance reasons and concealed security screens incorporated into the design. Staff rooms, administration office, mezzanine storage and service workshop were created to the rear of the building. This building features regularly in Stihl shop television advertisements as their flagship building.
