HISTORY

Shop - No1 Lifestyle Gallery

 

 

WHEN WE - GUNNAR AND MANUELA HOPF - LOOK BACK TO MARCH 2008 WHEN WE OPENED THE NO1 LIFESTYLE GALLERY, COMPARING WHAT WAS AVAILABLE IN THE SHOP THEN, WITH WHAT WE HAVE TODAY, WE ARE ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHED.

WE ARRIVED BACK WITH OUR SOUTH AFRICAN FAMILY FROM OUR VACATION IN ARGENTINA, WHERE WE HAD A BRAINSTORMING SESSION ON THE NAME AND CONCEPT OF THE PROJECT IN AU. THINGS THEN MOVED ON VERY QUICKLY. WE HAD DECIDED TO PUT TOGETHER SOMETHING COMPLETELY NEW, WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT EXACTLY THAT WOULD BE. WE PLANNED TO SET CERTAIN FRAMEWORK PARAMETERS, WITHIN WHICH THE NO1 PROJECT COULD DEVELOP OF ITS OWN ACCORD.

WHAT DOES AN OASIS NEED MOST OF ALL? "WATER". WE AIMED TO OFFER THIS WATER IN THE FORM OF EXTREMELY GOOD COFFEE AND TEA. WITH THIS AIM IN MIND, WE ARRANGED FOR A SUPERB BAR IN THE SOUTH AFRICAN COLONIAL STYLE TO BE BUILT BY ARTISTS AND FRIENDS FROM THAT BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY. THIS BAR WAS INTENDED TO ACT AS THE CENTRE OF OUR NO1... A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN SPEND A LITTLE TIME AND JUST BE. A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE LIKE TO SPEND A LITTLE TIME AND CAN SIMPLY FEEL GOOD. THE REST DEVELOPED OF ITS OWN ACCORD, AND NOW WE HAVE AN ATTRACTIVE AND CHARISMATIC LIFESTYLE OASIS, THAT HAS SO MUCH TO OFFER.
