Printed and hand-bound book

Franziska Steinkohl






Studio Pacific Architecture is a design and architecture firm based in Wellington, New Zealand. The design translates the studio's unique characteristics into a portfolio book. The cover design was predominantly influenced by Studio Pacific's "Kumototo Toilets", a public restroom located at the Wellington waterfront. 

Bold, red and large typographic elements as well and the attention to detail create a clear hierarchy. The final copy was hand-bound to convey a sense of craftsmanship and risk-taking. A folded cover sleeve, which unwraps into a poster, translates the 3D qualities of architecture into a 2D space making the book a complete tactile object.
