Design and display specialist the Wonderworks has completed a project for a new Lindley-based deli, which has seen part of the space transformed into a ‘faux living’ wall.
Heritage Deli has been launched by the heritage team at Wellington Mills and offers fresh and healthy brunches, lunches and afternoon tea. As part of the interior design process, the team appointed the Wonderworks to turn a large, empty wall into a focal point for customers.
Wonderworks founder Rob Curran said: “We wanted to create something that would have lots of impact for customers coming through the door but which also reflected the deli’s offer. We started by developing some artwork concepts and then once agreed, we built and produced the wall in our workshop.
“The heritage part of the logo was cut out of the main structure and we added an artificial green wall behind it, so it looks like greenery is growing through it. The ‘deli and kitchen’ part of the logo was laser cut in acrylic and added after it was fitted.”
Measuring 5m x 1.8m, the feature wall took six weeks to design and produce and was so large that it had to be lifted through the window using a truck crane before it was installed.
Krystina Firth, site manager for Heritage Exchange added: “The creativity of the Wonderworks team has turned our idea into reality, transforming an uninspiring blank space into a focal point that reflects both the fresh food we serve and the historic mill we call home.
“The faux living wall has exceeded our expectations and we’re all really proud of it. We’re sure our customers will be just as impressed.”
Located in Lindley, Wellington Mills is owned by Heritage Exchange and also comprises serviced apartments, 30 offices a spa and health club.
