Inspiration

Yu Mei, Newmarket Store

The new Yu Mei, Newmarket Store chose to utilise Oamaru stone, amongst other natural materials like onyx marble in the fit-out. The deer Nappa used to make the brand’s products are farmed in Oamaru, just around the corner from where the stone is quarried, so the geographical link between the brands is strong.

Parkside Quarries

As early as the 1860’s limestone has been quarried at various sites around North Otago, to build some of New Zealand’s most prominent architecturally designed buildings.
In 1906 the first stone was quarried from the current site on the Parkside farm. Some of the first stone produced from Parkside was used to build Ōamaru’s iconic Opera House
