Cowlishaw Mews was designed and built to house award winning chef, Phillip Kraal and partner Helen Kraal’s, fine dining Le Bon Bolli restaurant and an office block in 1996. It is now over shadowed somewhat in size by the huge glass and steel structure of the Christchurch Art Gallery beside, however the architectural class of the Cowlishaw Mews building continues to see it sit perfectly within its surroundings. To this day it is still home to the bustling restaurant/bar Fiddlesticks.
A custom-made, curved face brick was produced by Canterbury Clay Bricks to give a seamless finish around the cylindrical brick towers. Having been built in 1996 the building has withstood natural disasters and changing tenants, which proves good design and construction should and will last through generations.
Cowlishaw Mews has provided function and flexibility within its working space for the tenants and
a low maintenance yet timeless finish for the owner.
