Gulf Rise

With a vision to provide true premium and practical spaces for the village’s residents, Gulf Rise was designed by Urban Lounge Interiors for Metlifecare.





Gulf Rise offers a refreshing take on retirement living, just a short stroll from Auckland’s Red Beach on the beautiful Hibiscus Coast. At the heart of the village is the Clubhouse, a shared space that is home to a cafe, library, wellness facilities and workshops.

Process & Suppliers

Acorn Furniture had the pleasure of working alongside Urban Lounge Interiors as the primary supplier of furniture throughout the facility. Thoughtful design and care went into the entire project, from the initial concepts and furniture choices through to the delivery and installation.

Customised Products

Acorn delivered a suite of functional products, including new and customised designs, catering to an elderly demographic.

Chairs and sofas were upholstered in a range of plush, textural fabrics to create a homely and welcoming feel. While adjustments to our existing range ensured each piece fitted perfectly into the design brief. 

Delivery & Installation

With a focus on care and detail, Acorn also installed and placed each piece of our furniture at the village.  

We were thrilled to see a range of spaces, from dining to living, fitted out and are excited for residents to enjoy all that Gulf Rise has to offer.
