On 14 March, garden centre Coppelmans in the Dutch town of Nuenen will be opening its impressive new premises. Laminated pine trusses and columns make for a natural experience at the very entrance to the building.
Striking design choices that enhance the atmosphere and are becoming ever more popular. Ben Boon: “Wood is chosen because it goes well with a garden centre’s look: green and natural. And apart from creating this warm ambiance, wood also offers a lot of scope in design, and it can be beautifully combined with other materials.”
Thermoflor works with wood outside the Netherlands, too, for example in Canada, where the new Wilsons Garden & Lifestyle Centre features tall wooden columns and trusses. Here the wood has been attractively combined with the design’s other elements of glass and steel.
