This new bar and restaurant in the heart of the historic village of Haworth needed a planting scheme to bring its treehouse concept to life, ready for opening.
Working with Francesco Pillitteri from JS Design and owner Frank Stott, Urban’s Joe Potts devised a scheme which created a forest feel around the space.
The scheme’s centrepiece is a replica tree, that seems to grow out of the middle of the room, a ‘treehouse’ function room appearing to sit in its branches. We built the tree ourselves, with the help of a joiner and French polisher, then attached lifelike replica foliage from Treelocate.
Behind the bar, a preserved moss wall sits behind the bottle shelf, with moss balls of varying shades and heights creating a natural and textural feel.
The restaurant has some wooden feature walls, so we carefully positioned replica greenery to create a sense of planting growing through the wooden slats and providing an informal frame for the signwriting.
Along a large white wall, replica ivy appears to creep up and across the space, a finishing touch to the array of biophilic elements introduced by the designer, all working together to immerse diners and drinkers in nature.
