Our shop has an interesting story.
Originally a Sea Container it was converted into a portable gallery for the 2011 Start Festival at Prince Charle's residence, Clarence House. It was turned into a see-through gallery with a green roof for the exhibition. The roof was wildflower meadow turn and lighting was low voltage led so it could be run from a solar panel.
Following on from the success of The Pallet House The Earth Awards asked us to come up with a gallery solution for the 2011 Start Festival at Clarence House. We wanted to use a-re cycled sea container and create something that could be used again and again. At first Clarence House wasn’t sure about having a sea container on the lawn so we turned the concept in to a sea-through gallery with a green roof making it as invisible as possible. The roof was wildflower meadow turf and lighting was low voltage led so it could be run from a solar panel.
After the exhibition the gallery was sent to Coleford Town Council in the Forest of Dean for community use.
The shop being delivered.
And now it's our shop.
