A passion for cutting-edge design and the belief that lighting should be front and centre when building or renovating are behind Frontier Electrical’s decision to open a new concept room in Matakana.
The space has been designed to display every type of lighting in a bespoke, welcoming space, from stunning sculptural pendant pieces to numerous types of downlights, switches and fittings.
Director Mark O’Shea says lighting is often underrated in the building or renovation process, or left to the last minute. He started Frontier six years ago to provide a quality one-stop electrical service focused on style and design using the best products from leading, high-end suppliers.
“There’s so much on offer out there, but people don’t know what their options are,” he says. “We can show people what’s possible with light and work through a full concept plan with their interior design theme and colours to find what will work best for them.”
As well as interior lighting, Frontier specialises in providing state-of-the-art audio visual, security, access, home automation and garden lighting systems. The company has fitted out homes from the Bay of Islands down to the Coromandel. But with the bulk of its work in Auckland, Waiheke and Rodney, and the boom in building locally, it made sense to put down roots in Matakana.
“We moved to Point Wells a year ago and I’ve always liked Matakana. It’s an up and coming area and very central to everything that’s going on,” Mark says. “We can welcome customers here and work out a plan that works the best for them.”
