HPW's role for the Wyevale Home and Garden Centre project at Bicester Avenue encompassed architecture, interior design and graphic design providing a fully integrated approach.

The 26 acre site has 104,000ft2 of contemporary heated retail space, innovatively styled as an outdoor mall. Home, aquatics, pet and hobby retailers line up either side of 14 mature trees, hand-picked in Holland. The trees form a stunning avenue leading to Wyevale's entrance, immediately distinguishing the development from other garden centre anchored retail parks.

The HPW design for the development won both the coveted Retail Week - Store Design of the Year Award and the Retail Interiors – Retail Destination of the Year Award.

 

Its sheer size makes the development unique...

Together, the 30,000ft2 covered plant sales and 80,000ft2 plant display areas at Wyevale are bigger than the whole of an average garden centre. To cater for the number of visitors, the site includes a 250 cover theatre style restaurant, a food market, and parking for 800 cars plus overflow parking.

With their passion for sustainability, the HPW team built in many environmentally friendly features. These include rainwater harvesting, natural ventilation and lighting, specifying FSC timber plus sensitively landscaping the surrounding area to maintain natural wildlife habitats.
