After successfully delivering the initial La Petite Crêperie caravan conversion in Knox City, we were again contacted to bring their next space to life at the new Forest Hill Chase Shopping Centre. But with a few major differences.
This time the caravan was designed with an open roof, allowing for extra shelving to be built. An open-beam design lived above the caravan, serving to modernise the structure while still keeping the distinctive external appearance.
All this was completed offsite, due to heavy pedestrian traffic. The caravan was designed, built, disassembled and flat packed before being reassembled amongst the throngs of passing shoppers.
Now firmly in place as an icon of Forest Hill Chase, the caravan – replete with extensive counter space, a commercial crêpe kitchen and naked wood surfaces – stands as a fun, exciting new space for shoppers to gather.
