Inspiration - An Urban Oasis
When given a new project, cofounders of J. Barney Toad, Susie and Kathy use their imagination (and a pencil) to ideate possibilities for the space.
They then design a solution based on their understanding of how people, animals and nature might interact in a space.
They then create an environment that all can enjoy, using natural materials to soften this urban space and support pollinators like bees, birds and butterflies.
