Flower Store

Contacted by Amala Shah on behalf of Flowerstore, the retail store was designed and built along feng shui principles, with the location of the store specifically positioned relative to the curve of the Thames.

The glass panel in the ceiling was installed to reflect the water from the river and feng shui dictated the positions of everything from the cash desk to the storage area. At some expense, we even offset the original landlord-installed doors from each other. The design incorporated a mix of raw and refined finishes, with the raw being used out of context.

The flowers were displayed as works of art within this environment.

A few years later, we were chuffed to see Flowerstore Oxo Tower feature in the film Love Actually.
