Airbnb is such a global trend, with over 190 countries covered and I have now had the pleasure to create a brand and overall theme for a startup in Howick, Auckland, New Zealand.
These guys have been hard at work creating and building their homes for guests to stay in and enjoy a stay in urban Auckland. Howick is located 30 minutes from Central Auckland City and 25 minutes from the Auckland Airport.
Howick is one of Auckland’s oldest towns and was colonised by the fencibles when Auckland was first settled by English people.
We created a short and catchy name – urbany.nz
We then set about naming each house that is available for short stays. These names are urbany nest and urbany base.
Each name represents a particular design element taken from the house itself. Nest was to reflect the timber exterior cladding the house, looking much like a nest in the trees.
Base came about to present a name that demonstrates to the clients the can use if as a base for their Auckland stay.
So we are ongoing with this project and development but sure to say this will be a truly great place to stay.
