Interior design and fitout, 80 seat restaurant and bar – The Oaks Shores Queenstown, Queenstown

"Foster and Burke have been instrumental in the development of our restaurant, the Oaks Shores Queenstown. Their professionalism, prompt turn-around and ability to relate to the requirements of the project made the process much easier.
Making use of the natural light and
views over Lake Wakatipu, Stephen and Jean have provided a modern and functional space with a touch of refinement. It is a truly wonderful and warm space. I am also grateful to the F&B team for delivering on time and within budget.”

General Manager, Oaks Hotels and Resorts Ltd, Sydney



"Based on the excellent result Foster and Burke achieved at The Glebe, we decided to engage them to upgrade our 4-bedroom penthouse at 'The Shores'. A smattering of the superlatives to date have been "spectacular, stunning and wow.
Jean's passion for her work, attention to detail plus her creative flair has transformed our apartment. A picture is worth a thousand words and Jean has painted her picture in our apartment. We have no hesitation in using the Foster and Burke team for future work and recommend them for projects that require flair, quality and that 'extra' eye for detail and finish. A project 'more than well done’.”

“Having bought a house in New Zealand that needed a total refurbishment, and living in the UK, we needed an interior designer that we could trust from a distance. On recommendation we contacted Jean Foster, who assigned her partner Stephen Burke, and we got on immediately! He seemed to know my tastes straight away – and was efficient, friendly and extremely polite – with a great sense of humour to top it off. The house looks fantastic and is now a comfortable and very gorgeous home.”
