This stunning install was for Stevens & Bolton LLP in Surrey. Hydroculture plants were used throughout the joinery and shelving planting, whereas replica foliage was installed when planting at height and in the ceiling raft. We used Kentia palms, Monstera, Chamaedorea palm and Aglaonema for the joinery in the seating areas to create height and texture. One of the benefits of including Palms in the floor plan is that they are very efficient at removing chemicals from the air; Benzene, Formaldehyde, Ammonia Benzyne etc.
All of these are unfortunately present in our working environment, whether from car exhausts or man-made materials. These hard-working plants help remove these toxins while releasing oxygen to create a cleaner and more productive workplace.
We used Scindapsus as trailing plants on the open shelving to soften these industrial structures as they mature. Scindapsus work well in a variety of different lighting but their variegated leaves will benefit from some light.
Sansevieria have been used throughout the office as table and shelving plants as they are incredibly robust architectural plant and will survive in most settings.
