The Toad Plant Shop was originally built as a small restaurant. Keeping all existing walls, The plant shop will use as much of the existing building; adding only one wall and replacing a door with a window. The plant shop plans to change the kitchen/cooking area into a space for minimal storage as well as an employee kitchenette. The restroom will remain as it was built and new flooring and wall finishes will be added to match design intent. Built-ins for displaying products will be attached to the walls and new treatment to the facade of the building also aids in transforming the space into The Toad Plant Shop.
Transaction Counter Rendering
Inspired by the mystic of forgotten buildings left to be overtaken by nature, the design of this project aimed to create an atmosphere where customers can feel the plants had possessed the building. With a soft, playful tile pattern on the floor the plant shop feels fun and energetic without becoming overwhelming. Custom wall treatment gives the interior walls the illusion of being weathered and aged with natural, soft textures and colors. Wood fixtures and furnishings introduce a warm and inviting feeling and provide the perfect spot to showcase products to customers.
