Designed around 3 connected concepts - community, mind, and nature.

This inviting and sensual space helps support and improve our mental wellbeing, as a space to connect and socialize with others, relaxing seating within grasses swaying in the breeze, invigorating natural textures as natural play areas, a calming colour palette, and aroma of fresh herbs around the small counter and picnic area.

The design process includes an initial meeting, site visits, discussing the design brief, understanding timescales. From there we create a design package to include visuals, details, concept plans, plant and material selection.
