Snow whale / by Jonathan Green

Our hardest feature was without doubt the whale.

The whale had to be carved out of the ceiling so that it was part of the room structure, to make it safe.

We wanted to give the guests a view of a whale and its calf gliding overhead whilst laying in bed, but it gave us a huge amount of work to achieve.

However difficult it was, it was completely worth it, but surprising how many visitors walk in to the room, and don’t look up.

In my mind you would walk into the room and see the whales eye looking down at you at the door, but I guess people’s first reaction is to want to look at whats immediately in front of them.

We didn’t mind though. We always wanted people to discover things as they looked around, to keep finding things they hadn’t seen before.
