What is ADLibrary?

ADLibrary is a concept set up by two local interior designers in Wanaka who had become frustrated at the lack of access to sampling and design events for professionals in Southland. They also wanted to provide a space for other industry professionals to work, collaborate and network while providing an extensive sample library to use for specifying product for projects. A one stop shop for designing a home or commercial space within a welcoming design community.
