The latest chapter in the Devon Wildlife Trust’s work has just opened in Seaton, East Devon. Seaton Jurassic is an exciting new visitor attraction that tells the story of the geology and marine ecology of the Jurassic Coast – England’s first Natural World Heritage Site.
We joined the project almost a year ago and worked with the DWT to create the cafe and shop interior for Seaton Jurassic, incorporating a number of geology and marine inspired graphic features.
The Seaton Jurassic Centre Manager, Mike Ruiter, who we worked closely with on the design of the cafe area was kind enough to say the following about his experience working with Fruition.
The team at Fruition have a keen understanding of how to create well balanced spaces where customers can feel relaxed, whilst inviting them to spend. Our café and shop needed to be connected to the interpretation in the exhibits, without giving too much away or become overwhelming. Plus, be accessible and inviting to both exhibit visitors and customers just wanting to visit our cafe and shop.
The end result does exactly that and many customers comment on the impressive design of the café. It is a great place for people to enjoy a sit down meal or a quick snack and it builds anticipation for what is to come in the exhibits. We are very pleased with how Fruition have managed to transform this critical area into successful hub and boost for the centre as a whole.
