Due to the impact of the global pandemic, the British government implemented the home-isolation policy in 2020. As a result, this policy has fuelled the rising desire for urban citizens to become closer to nature. Through market and customer surveys, the project ‘Urban Green Farmland (UGF)’ is therefore created with a unique focus on the concept of rose. Specifically, UGF incorporates the plantation, the harvest, the customer’s pick of rose, and the making of flower-based pastries all in one place.
Ground Floor. The west section of the ground floor is designed for the DIY and sale of flower-based pastries. Customers will be submerged into nature with the assistance of wooden furniture and a rattan ceiling. In addition, the main material used in the kitchen is glass. This glassy design subtly harmonizes the brightness and space of the whole kitchen area and enables a vivid presentation of how the flower-based pastries are made. Ground Floor Plan. The east section of the ground floor is multifunctional. In particular, it is divided into Social and Quiet zones where customers have the complete flexibility to either work or spend a cosy afternoon with a book and a cup of coffee.
Lower Ground Floor. After the rose petals are picked from the yard, they will be directly sent to the lower ground floor for drying and the production of rose jams. With the respect to the yard, wooden boxes are used to create a place for planting roses and for visitors to chill. Anyone stepping into this area will feel free from all the stress caused by the pandemic. All they need to do is sit in the tranquil yard, inhale the fragrance of rose, and feel the peaceful nature.
