A New Perspective

A new perspective

Something has been placed in the Winterfold (no, not Winterfell) Forest in Surrey to lure city dwellers out to the countryside for a change. We all know Surrey for its great real estate, Guildford and….good commuter links? But now just an hour from London Waterloo we can stop off at the local train station Gomshall and start walking along a beautiful scenic route in the heart of the forest to seek out a hidden gem. The London-based design practice, Giles Miller design, has installed a cedar-shingled pavilion atop one of the forest hills for individuals to stop, pause and admire the beautiful landscape.

A steel framework holds the oval structure together, attached to which are cedar wood shingles. Each shingle has been inscribed with messages and poems from local schools and was attached by hand to the structure. The design means each shingle overlaps with the last, creating a beautiful acorn effect across the structure. It blends perfectly with the surrounding landscape and the overall impact, both on the approach to and standing underneath the structure, is quite breath-taking.

It is the perfect example of a quality design that captures the nature of the forest it sits in and the landscape it looks out upon. We urge you to go and take a further look!

Covid-19 Update

We’re open and back to work!

As we continue to adapt our designs and response to how we will build exhibition spaces throughout 2020 and beyond, we look at ways to better improve the built environment following COVID.

Regarding UK public exhibitions, we’re continuing to keep a close eye on governmental guidelines and maintaining communication with our valued clients. Any updates and protocols that may come into play tailored to the events & exhibition industry, we’re here and ready to assist you.

As we come out of the lockdown in the UK, we expect an influx of projects to return where earlier shows have been postponed to later in the year. We will do our best to facilitate last minute orders but strongly recommend giving us early notice where possible.

Internationally, we’re already back to work, delivering our projects and services overseas as many EU nations open up.
