Revamp at Kirstenbosch

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden opened its revamped gift shop last week by exhibiting the talents of local artisans. Tourvest CEO Allison Graham, said the previous shop fittings had become tired and that under architect Philip Stiekema they brought the “outside in” by using laser-cut leaf, bird, butterfly and insect patterns depicting the seasonal changes in the garden and forming a virtual tree canopy that runs through the shop.
