Having had a log cabin from us previously, Dan at Ginkgo had no hesitation in asking us to design and build a new cafe building for the garden centre in Ravenscourt Park, London.
A “L” shaped building was proposed in 55mm log, the front wing measuring 12 metres by 6 metres and the other wing 5.7 metres by 8 metres coming into the garden centre. Lots of doors and windows were added to allow plenty of access and natural light. Ginkgo choose our UPVC doors and windows which not only look great but also offer extra security. 4 velux windows were put in the roof to allow even more light to flood in and green roof shingles were chosen to blend in nicely with the garden centre’s greenery.
Inside the whole cabin was painted in a lovely subtle green/blue which gives a wonderful relaxing contemporary feel. The whole building is a stunning success – The Independent described it as “achingly trendy”- and has had first class reviews for its ambience and food.
