  • Company: Hoxton Street Monster Supplies
  • Year: 2018
A magical interactive postal service for children (and adults) to write letters to Monsters and receive a reply. Set within the Hoxton Street Monster Supplies shop, a dead space was transformed using a false wall, a secret door disguised as a curiosity cabinet, and a bench and seats installed for comfy letter writing. The space is highlighted from outside with features set in the windows to attract new audiences.
