Café Society


Alan, Louise and Josh from Five Mile Café ltd, for whom we have previously designed and built three other cafes, approached us to do the same in a new site in Queenstown. This time they wanted us to go one step further to create an award winning café and one that fitted in well with the Queenstown market.

There were two real challenges for us in this project. Firstly was the consent process with the local council but we got that moved through in a timely way. Secondly the roof went on only several weeks before the café was due to open, but through teamwork with the building contractor and the client, the café opened virtually on-time.


What Our Client Said

We decided to select Designability and Miller Studios for this project as we have worked together on other projects and it is a continued relationship based on trust, reputation and ability to get the components of the design and build brought together on time and on budget.

Significant outcomes for us resulting from our association with you are good coordination and delivery on time. You communicated well with us and your excellent workmanship & problem solving were admirable.

We presented our own visionary of design and layout to the Designability/Miller's team and you have absorbed these aspects and integrated your own experience and tradesman ship to achieve our picture.

Success is paved with potholes and pitfalls but end result speaks for itself.

There are other project managers and designers, however, Designability and Miller Studios have been around for a very long time and have the experience and resources to source and pull together the finished result.

We would be happy to recommend you to potential clients and, if they wish, we are happy for them to see through our fitout.
