New management meant a different look for Auckland’s iconic Newmarket audio retailer - The Sound Store. The carefully designed fit-out recreated different areas of the home to showcase high-end audio brands and bespoke home automation solutions.

“We wanted to show people how to get the best from their homes, in sound quality and function,” said The Sound Store co-owner, Chris du Toit. “Our showroom can now demonstrate this in a meaningful way, whether customers are looking at upgrading their kitchen, living room or outside areas.”

Chris went to Cutshop North Shore with a very clear idea of the different zones that he wanted to create in the store. Cutshop worked with Chris to design a well-finished kitchen area, two island desks and two display benches using MDF White Satin and Polaris 24mm Black from Plytech.

“Our timelines were very tight,” admits Chris. “Cutshop had to turn the jobs around very quickly and they did it without compromising on accuracy or finish. We were happy with the price too.

“It was quite a tricky job because we wanted a very specific look. Cutshop helped us to hammer out the design details. Everything went ahead very smoothly, and the outcome is exactly what we were after.”
