ilex, stems from the
latin name holm oak,
one of the oldest trees
in the Botanic Gardens.
From garden to plate, we appreciate.
Branding the new cafe and events centre at the heart of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens was a welcome and wonderful opportunity.
As a key meeting point for visitors to the gardens we wanted the centre to be a full sensory experience; one where people could share their love for nature and all it has to offer.
And so we created ilex, a place of natural appreciation where people can taste, touch, smell, see and learn about the beauty all around them. At ilex from garden to plate, we appreciate.
