Flor & Fjære is a unique family owned destination located on an island in the cold fjords outside Stavanger, Norway. A one-of-a-kind greenhouse restaurant that can seat up to 600 guests, placed in the middle of 50 acres of incredible gardens with beautiful beaches and tropical palm trees – a visit here is both peaceful and exciting.

Together with the family we defined a brand strategy and visual identity to tell their story.

Family history

From purchasing the homestead in 1965 – to opening for guests in 1995 – the Bryn family have transformed a windswept islet into a breathtaking garden.

A serene garden scene with blooming flowers and lush greenery. The view includes a calm body of water reflecting the sunlight, with trees and branches framing the image. The distant landscape and soft light create a peaceful atmosphere.
A tranquil garden featuring a pond surrounded by large rocks, various trees, and meticulously pruned shrubs. Three tall white birch trees stand prominently on the left side, with a variety of greenery and colorful flowers in the background. The scene is serene and lush, with reflections visible on the calm water surface.

Fresh sea, colorful gardens and delicious food – Flor & Fjære is many things. The logo symbol hints to it all, but is foremost a homage to the northernmost palm tree garden in the world.
