Indoor Garden Design
Bluebird is an established restaurant on the Kings Rd that is steeped in history. In 2015 we were asked by D & D to re-design the outdoor space taking into consideration the practical requirements of a busy, working café set within the boundaries of a Grade II listed building. Its origins were as a noted Art Deco garage complex that was converted in 1997 to a restaurant.

After successfully completing the courtyard design, in Sept 2016 the upstairs restaurant underwent a massive refurbishment. As part of the project we were asked to propose a fresh new interior garden design that would include mature trees as well as an English country side feel. This was quite a logistical challenge and an exciting introduction to indoor planting on a massive scale. The atmosphere created by the nine superb Bucida buceras trees (one is almost 6m tall!), the ferns, grasses and other low planting is dramatic but enchanting. The experience has given us the taste for similar indoor garden design projects, realizing the huge impact that greenery can have inside when implemented realistically.
