est. 1995 HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
botton + gardiner was founded by architect and furniture designer, Mike Botton, and sales and marketing specialist, Carol Gardiner, to fulfil their passion for creating Australian products of uncompromising quality for the urban sector. Focused on local manufacture, an extensive network of specialist subcontractors was developed.
REPUTATION FOR PROFESSIONALISM
botton + gardiner built a reputation in the marketplace for taking the time to understand our customers specific needs and then tailoring services to achieve the optimal solution. This culminated in being awarded preferred supplier status for Westfield in 2002, which continues through to today. Combined with the delivery of several landmark public space urban projects and winning Western Sydney Parklands suite of furniture competition in 2009, botton + gardiner established a strong position in public space furniture.
GLOBAL SUPPLIERS + GROWTH
Aquired by Baresque in 2013, our key markets of urban and shopping centres expanded to include student housing, hotels, education, aged care, hospitality and interiors. With a renewed vision for supplying diverse project solutions we partnered with leading global brands Landscape Forms (USA) and Metalco (Italy) to import cutting edge international products, as well as collaborating with Asian manufacturers on our own inhouse Australian designs. Through Baresque Manufacturing’s factory facilities a multitude of manufacturing processes were brought in-house.
WHERE WE ARE TODAY
Today all aspects of botton + gardiner’s history and experience have culminated in our ability to tackle large scale, custom and complex public space projects with finesse and professionalism.
