In the breakout area there are wooden benches with built-in planters, which we chose to plant symmetrically with rows of Sansevieria zeylanica. These upstanding plants give a clean, minimal feel to the planting scheme, while also being tough enough to survive the odd knock or two, which is vital for plants in such a high-traffic location.
Throughout the wider office we used a wide variety of plants in different containers. Planters are largely high-gloss red, black, or in a natural wood finish, mirroring the decor scheme throughout the office. Planting has been selected to give a further nod to the Japanese culture – Ficus ginseng, for instance, with its pot-bellied trunk and its soft round foliage, creates a fittingly eye-catching feature with a distinctive oriental feel.
The senior executives’ offices were designed with a more personal feel in mind. Yucca tips, red anthuriums, white orchids and large Dracaena Janet Craigs provide a unique planting feel that is at once calming and creatively inspiring.
