The Aralia landscape design team worked with the venue owners on a space which would match the high-quality of the newly-renovated bar and the NOVI brand.

It took the eclectic feel of the interior design and specified wooden panelling and rustic brick walls, juxtaposing these with smooth and slick marble-look tables.

The practice said: "Aralia made sure to filter the brand’s botanic vibe into our designs, including elements such as the exotic planting palette, lush evergreens and a green wall. This living green wall not only serves as an amazing backdrop, for that perfect Instagram shot, but also accommodates seasonal herbs for cocktail making."

Aralia also designed an outside botanical bar and bespoke pergola and garden furniture to complete a botanical yet beach ambience.

The company won a 5 Star Award for client Gaze Burvill after designing a trade show stand for the furniture maker at this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The stand, on Main Avenue, was described by studio principal Patricia Fox as "almost a show garden".
