Hospitality + Leisure

Retail + Public Space

Little Culprit

An intimate and cosy hospitality hotspot in Auckland’s CBD. Lovingly crafted, this small multi-level space was previously used as a public toilet notorious for its questionable activity. Now serving corporate Auckland, this “art house” pays homage to the quality food and beverages it provides.

Located on the ground floor of an iconic 1980’s tower, Ministry was tasked to design a bar fitting of its locale.

Embracing the challenge of adapting the; small, split-level space, the design team have subtly maximised the available space at every possible occasion. Strong branding is integrated throughout the design allowing it to be unique yet cohesive with its sibling premises.

The bar’s early success is a reflection of its ability to provide a new discerning experience in the hospitality market.
