CONCEPT

      s autumn sweeps over the unparalleled landscape of low hills and oblong lakes known as the Okanagan, visitors near and far flock to experience the valley’s flourishing fruit trees. A driver of tourism and agriculture, orchards plentiful in arrays of vibrant fruits are engraved in the diverse identity of what we know to be the Okanagan. These orchards remain home to an abundance of trees, thriving as they produce a variety of fruits to be enjoyed all across the valley. The trees work in unison, budding from the same soil, laying the same roots, and by harvest, they are to produce fruit reminiscent of their labours.

 

Not unlike an orchard’s intent to facilitate growth and synergy amongst its trees, The Maker’s Market will foster a collective initiative for members to work and sell, by means of collaboration. Located in the cultural district of downtown Kelowna, at the heart of the Okanagan, the market is rooted in enhancing the community and economy. This will be achieved through means of hosting local artisans and vendors both in a retail and office setting, where they can collectively sell goods, collaborate with aligned businesses, and work independently. These artisans and vendors will come together on the same soil to work in harmony, spread the same roots, and eventually, produce goods representational of their passions.

ELEVATIONS

The interior takes inspiration from organic forms and irregular shapes present in the Okanagan’s burgeoning orchards, straying from sharp lines and straight edges.  Materials are kept natural and muted, allowing artisan work to be the feature.

A large tree feature in the entry draws customers in, while a reclaimed wood ceilings brings the eye up.  The cafe is kept warm with wood tones and a curved banquette, while the office creates a warm and relaxed environment.
