Studio Stilton set the concept for The Culpeper pub rooftop this summer. The theme is PICKLES, for their power to provoke and preserve. The roof plays host to over 15 varieties of cucumber. Some will be served straight up on plates and in cocktails, others will have their energy preserved in brine for Winter. The striped decking design is drawn directly from the skin of the humble pickle itself. As the ultimate gesture to pickle power, an 8ft illuminated gherkin stands proud at the front of the rooftop. From a certain angle the gherkin eclipses Norman Fosters. The theme also plays homage to the infamous Nicholas Culpeper - herbalist, botanist and astronomer - after whom the pub is named.
