Having completed their new building in Battersea Park, the horticultural therapy charity Thrive raised funds for a project on growing herbs for cooking and wanted a small kiosk where the herbs and other plants raised on the site could be sold to the public. This mini shop is manned by Thrive's 'gardeners' as social enterprise training. The brief was for a shed visually linked to the main building, that would have a small storage area, provide shelter if the weather was poor, could be shut up securely at night and could be constructed on a small budget. Pedder & Scampton's design is a curved backed timber clad box with sliding front doors made from two hit and miss gates. The slats on the doors enable pots and plants to be hung on, forming part of the sales display when the kiosk is open.
