As a collaborative design team member for this retail destination, we created an innovative design concept in keeping with the Cooperative’s mission of continuing education and conservation. Upon arrival, visitors from around the world are immersed in a young forest of native trees and shrubs, starting in the understory and climbing through the forest canopy to the building entry. This innovative approach to retail design features acres of native plant species, interpretive paths, waterfalls, and a mountain bike test trail.
