Home : Knights Stream Park
Knights Stream Park is a celebration of urban developers making the most of the outdoor spaces. Our work involved creating installations in both steel, wood and stone, prefect compliments to the well landscaped areas around the park areas.
The Knights Stream Park project evolved after Fane Robinson [Ngāi Tahu] approached Brent [AF] to look at options for some unique art installation options in the public space around suburban development in Halswell. As part of all new developments Christchurch City Council legally require the integration of the cultural narrative connecting the land, people and how the area is used, and Kiri Jarden [CCC] enabled and oversaw the creation of the master plan.
From the ground up literally, this development incorporated the cultural narrative, while also working closely with engineers to determine best practice for installations. However the link didn’t end there, and as the project evolved timber discovered when the land was cleared, was repurposed as part of the toi toi art features, that punctuate the open spaces.
Knights Stream Park has developed, with custom built paths and intersections for children to learn to ride their bikes, and complete with stunning landscaping punctuated by custom art installations. This is a great example of how much a public space can be improved with commitment to the landscape surrounds and the stories that are told throughout.
As in any project of this scale Art Fetiche can provide a range of services and specific applications to enhance the final outcome. With skilled in house operators and state of the art tech, we add value to the over all impact of a project.
The AF team were engaged early on to develop the initial concept, which we then saw through to it's installation on site.

Art Fetiche can design, create and install across all medium, and on any scale from big to bigger!
Art Fetiche are absolute pros when it comes to all of our signage and bespoke pieces at Fush. We continue to give them tall orders and they always overdeliver. They have wrapped our food trucks, created stunning murals, one off bespoke lights, large scale one off pieces that hang from the ceiling, custom furniture and much more. AF have helped us share the Fush brand with the world in a way that makes us proud! I wouldn’t go anywhere else
