Truvia Voyage of Discover

Bompas & Parr flooded Selfridges roof to create a crystal island, Riviera style bar and boating lake above Oxford Street. The project encompassed an emerald green boating lake, thousands of stevia plants, 12 rowing boats, a gushing waterfall, a life guard, cocktails by ECC, design by Studio Toogood, uniforms by Tour de Force, tropical soundscapes by Dom James, teas by Rare Tea Company, coffees by Caravan,and a Crystal Island – all six storeys above London’s busiest shopping street. We worked with rollercoaster designers and three engineering firms to ensure that the weight loading from the 60 tonnes of water did not collapse Selfridges.
