4 Seasons Nails


  • Completion date:September 2015
  • Project size:200 sqm
  • Duration:5 months

4 Seasons Nails was an exciting opportunity to create a calming and inviting retail fit-out in one of Wellington’s premier shopping destinations.

Located near one of the main entrances, and conveniently located next door to Rodney Wayne Hair Salon (Another Catalyst Project) our clients wanted something that would attract cliental while still keeping links to the existing 4 Seasons Nails Brand. This store was the flagship franchised store for an already reputable brand and the first 4 Seasons Nails Salon within the Mall. We had previously designed the 4 seasons Nail Salon in the North City Mall for the business owner and as a result we were asked to design the Queensgate store for the franchisee. Our design team are used to combining the wants and needs of our clients with the strict requirements of the Mall to create an end product that make all parties involved happy. The existing branding such as the logo and timber slats were kept as a link to the original salons. Large wall graphics and a backdrop of hot pink panelling were added to create an eye catching fitout that would draw customers in.

Client objectives

  • To create a franchise store and branding that could be easily used to other locations around New Zealand
  • Have a new store that reflects the existing brand but pushes it further.
  • Have a process that is easy and hassle free for the client.

I have a couple of beauty franchises in Wellington and have been using several commercial fit out companies. I was not happy with the end result until I found Catalyst. From project manager to designer they are very professional and committed to their work. What I like about Catalyst is I was informed of progress every step of the way and they always kept to the time frame. I used catalyst twice and was very happy with the results, I will definitely contact them for my next projects.
