  • Our most recent updating of the iconic garden's store, where,  at present,  the words ‘shop’ on the door are the only real indicator there is a shop there at all. So, easy to miss, we identified the need to open up the existing façade to allow direct sight and access into the shop. 

    We proposed a shaded canopy,  a collection of ‘Corten’ steel sheets, with laser cut leaf patterns positioned under the existing pergola structure outside the shop, as the start and culmination of our internal ‘event’. 

    This canopy is a virtual ‘tree canopy’, forming a shaded space outside under which a freestanding retail unit can be positioned, providing further visual clue to the presence of the shop.

    The canopy, is the start of the journey thru the store and this journey is turned into a significant visual event when the this, passes into the store, the leaf pattern cut-outs evolve and disperse into individually cut leaves, birds, butterflies, insects.  An abstracted, ‘frozen-in-time’ narrative of the seasonal shifts in the garden formed into a ‘story cloud’.

    The success of the original trees concept introduced into the store more than 10 years ago in collaboration with Paul Edmunds, is that the trees, most obviously, connect the store directly with the garden itself.  The trees also, for the first time, filled the voluminous shop turning the space from an ‘exhibition stand’ store into one which claimed and grew into the whole space available.

    The latest concept more fully occupies this space like a swarming dynamic cloud made out of the shapes of the smaller players in the garden, the mostly unnoticed lil’ guys and bits, the leaves, the birds, bees, ants,….a story cloud.

    The story cloud emerges from the entrance doors and disperses thru the store in a strong indicative directional movement before rearranging itself and popping politely out again under into the existing pergola politely obeying the strict order of the existing architecture of the building.

    The elements are manufactured on a ‘zero waste principal using plywood sheets that are FSC compliant.  Sawdust from the CNC milling process is collected, bagged and packaged in ‘grow-tainers’, complete with Kirstenbosch seeds, ready for instant planting.   The sawdust forms the bulk of the planting medium.
