Wayward's designs for the interior and exterior gardens of the Stella McCartney Flagship Store at 23 Old Bond Street in London reflect Stella McCartney's commitment to sustainable design. Celebrating a love of nature, ‘Stella Rocks’ is a bespoke indoor rockery installation at the ground floor consisting of black limestone from a quarry in Durham and rocks straight from the McCartney farm in Campbeltown. Moss and thyme are replanted through Wayward’s scheme to rehome thousands of plants each year. The outdoor urban garden sanctuary on the first floor feature both annual and seasonal plantings. Silver birch trees sit alongside ferns, wild ginger and moss from Scotland.
“We could have done anything up there, but for me to be able to have a garden inside a building in Bond Street, just feels so luxurious. I’ve never known anything in a store that you can go in and have a garden, floating over you,” says Stella.
