The Shard: Avant Garden

The Brief

To transform ‘The View from The Shard’ into a themed experience for the guests of London’ tallest building!

In Detail

We were approached by ‘The View from The Shard’ – London’s tallest attraction, to transform the experience that guest’s receive through the art of themeing.

Our concept ‘Avant Garden’ has been brought to life from the ground floor entrance, all the way up to the 72nd floor and includes a dazzling array of floral displays and installations that fuses the idea of a quintessential British garden with a more contemporary, exotic twist.

As well as the physical installations, we created themed content that was projected and displayed on screens throughout the building and in the elevators! We also designed all artwork, logos, colour palettes and even staff uniforms too! (check out that funky doorman jacket).

Installations include:

Wall & Floor Vinyl Graphics
Giant 3D Flowers
Themed Cocktail Bars
Hanging Floral Chandeliers
Floating Flower Garlands
Baby Grand Piano

and much more… !

Avant Garden will be in place at The Shard for 3 months (beginning July 15th 2021), so make sure you book your visit and please do tag us in all your Instagram pictures and content using the handle @wearesketch
