A major project for client Edible Beauty Australia and their retail/hospitality space as well as a commercial office. Located on 47 George Street, The Rocks Sydney, this converted warehouse was designed with the client's brand in mind, drawing on the concept taken from the film "The Secret Garden" and the biophilic design movement.
Hospitality/Retail: The hospitality and retails space on the ground floor is equipped with a wellness bar selling the brand's beauty tea and collagen-infused drinks. A retail section with a custom designed point of sale and beauty sink for customers to try products. The materials board reflects a mature palette of dark green, black, and neutrals to draw the film's mood and aesthetic. Also exploring textures from the wavy timber panel for the ceiling and floor to ceiling supertree fitted columns reflecting the concept of biomimicry. An internal courtyard with hanging greenery and wisteria in the center allows patrons to sit and enjoy themselves under a skylight lit ceiling offering constant natural light.
Commercial office: On level 1, the brand's head office space includes a space for 10 working staff, a meeting room, think tank, kitchen, and 1 bathroom. From the entrance, there is a small waiting area. This floor is filled with constant natural light, as well as offering a view downstairs with a glass partition window that can open up to allow for constant airflow.
Design intention: Customers will have a strong sense of arrival, stepping into a biophilic world of the secret garden, representing nurture, wellness, and natural beauty of the brand's ethos. The brand's representatives will work in a space with a constant connection to nature, offering a fresh and rejuvenating place to work in.
