A New Zealand Pop-Up in San Francisco

Julie Carlson August 28, 2013

The most exciting thing about the America’s Cup race going on in San Francisco right now? It’s not a catamaran, but a pop-up restaurant from New Zealand.

A collaborative effort from New Zealand architects Fearon Hay, chefs Desmond Harris and Hayden McMillan, and furniture designers Douglas & Bec, the Waiheke Island Yacht Club channels the wild beauty of this little-known (to us, at least) island off the coast of Auckland. Design elements include a terrazzo-topped bar, handmade stools from Douglas + Bec (haphazardly upholstered with animal skins), and custom leather dining chairs. For more, go to Waiheke Island Yacht Club.

Above: The Waiheke Island Yacht Club is located on Pier 29 on the Embarcadero.

Above: The bar is topped with New Zealand-formed terrazzo from Terrazzo + Stoneworks.

Above: Among the oysters on offer: Coromandels from New Zealand.

Above: The design team left the interior as is, with a bit of whitewash.

Above: Long communal tables encourage New Zealand-style fraternizing.
