Glenora Cabinetry & Joinery


This stunning Waiheke property was originally designed to feel like a 17th century French Farmhouse. Tree Essence was involved in the initial fitout however, 12 years on, its new owners wanted to modernise its feel and yet stay sympathetic to its origins.

Tree Essence refurbished and reconfigured the wardrobes of the master and additonal bedrooms. All were substantial walkins and existing cabinetry did not fully utilise the space or work with the layout reconfigurations.

A bleached French oak finish was specified by interior designer Gretl Lukas (of Lukas Design) and the custom cabinetry then designed by Tree Essence to include plenty of storage space as well as hanging racks and window seating.

Tree Essence also designed built-in shelving for a study/library area (in the same bleached French oak) as well as interior shutters throughout, and cabinetry for the bathrooms.
