About Us

We create shops, cafes & bars… but essentially, we create experiences for customers of new or established businesses throughout New Zealand.

Ultimately, our role is to be a beneficial presence in your business. Our designs will attract and surprise potential customers which, in turn, will help them choose your space over your competitors, as well as increase awareness and memorability of your brand, resulting in increased sales.

Put simply, our designs get people in the door.

Once inside, if it’s a retail store, your product needs to take centre stage. Otra Forma designs are simple and functional, but we always make sure the fit-out provides a backdrop only, one that doesn’t compete with your product.

If it’s a hospitality venue, then we want to create a unique atmosphere, one that works aesthetically but also functionally.

In the end, it’s all about your customers having a positive and memorable experience that doesn’t break the budget in the design and fitout process, and one which ensures you receive the required ROI.

We are a full-service design studio that can guide you through the design, building consent and fit-out process. Fit-outs can be complicated but our experienced team and supplier network control your project from start to finish, so we deliver on time, on budget with no surprises.

The Otra Forma team consists of designers from New Zealand, South America and Europe allowing for a wide variety of design perspectives on any given project. Otra Forma project manages and collaborates with established shopfitters and builders throughout New Zealand.
