Architects Answers: The project of Restaurant Lugana, London [Subulate Minima]
This week, we have interviewed one of our main architects and technicians Miss Selma A, in relation to one of the latest projects we have completed at GOSS Outdoor. This project, in particular, involved a Subulate Quercus Minima to be installed at the front outdoor space of the Restaurant Lugana establishment, based in Beckenham, London.
Miss Selma has explained that the reason of her choosing to talk about this project, in particular, was due to the many complications of the naturally affected area which she has had to work with to accomplish this project: "This project was my personal biggest challenge so far, whilst working at GOSS Outdoor. The reason I have seen it suitable to talk about this installation was because of the many factors which affected the area we had to work with and come up with solutions to see the project through. The area we were working with was uneven on the right and left sides, there was not enough back wall height, the floor which the pergola was to be placed onto was uneven, and quite a few limitations involving the natural state of the site. In addition to those, we had the task of having to make sure the pergola seamlessly fitted under the Restaurant Lugana signage and looked as natural and perfect as possible."
Miss Selma continues on to explain how she has overcome these challenges during the project: "To be able to successfully complete this project, there was a lot of need for clear instructions and communications exchanged, and many drawing works was created to plan out the installation and of the product. The project required revising constantly during the development and I had to be able to be attentive to details, determined to succeed and gain extra support from our engineer consultants in regards to technical assistance."
We asked our architect how she felt upon the completion of the project: "To be able to see the drawing you create come to life and work incredibly flawlessly with such a simple operational system was mind-blowing and very rewarding at the end. It made me feel that all my efforts were worth it. The outdoor space looks very modern and comfortable, to help the customers of Lugana Restaurants enjoy a lovely meal outdoors."
We thank you for your hard work and look forward to hearing from you again about your future endeavours! Read More
