When it comes to a well-known brand like Kathmandu, getting the store fitout right can be tricky. We’ve been lucky enough to work with the Kathmandu team on multiple fitouts, including Silverdale and two concept stores in Christchurch and Newmarket.
Working with Kathmandu is an exciting mix of bringing an existing vision to life and solving problems as they arise. The spaces need to be authentic environments that customers can feel at home in, as well as where people can be inspired for their next outdoor adventure. To deliver this, Kathmandu needed shopfitters who would become an extension of their own team and work hard to capture the authentic nature of the Kathmandu brand – thanks to our timeliness and collaborative approach to projects, we were the natural choice.
Since the concept stores opened, Kathmandu and the Datum team took home three awards at the RED Awards – Fashion & Accessories Group Winner and Shopfront Excellence Award for Kathmandu Newmarket and the Sustainability Award for Kathmandu Christchurch. These awards recognise the high quality and passion that went into these projects – and we’re proud to have been involved.
