In 2015, a leading investment house based in Edinburgh embarked on a program to refresh its interior planting. Housed in an 1800's traditional sandstone building with large high ceiling-ed offices, furnishing and decor, the refresh was to include the front of house area encompassing the reception waiting room and prestigious meeting rooms.
The brief from the client was to provide a planting solution that provided a contemporary, quality feel whilst remaining in keeping with the traditional setting.
Although GP Plantscape were the existing provider the contract was put out to tender as a requirement of the refurbishment program and GP Plantscape successfully became the nominated supplier.
Our client asked for samples to envisage how they would look in situ before making the final decision. The critical criteria were that the containers and plants conveyed the quality feel of their surroundings and that they complemented the meeting spaces without being obtrusive. Our recommendation was the Mellow Planter which is classic with a natural look, reminiscent of wood paneling you might expect in an old traditional building. In contrast but in keeping with the natural feel, Seaside Polystone Partners were also installed which suited the décor but lent a more contemporary feel. Polystone Partners were also installed in the reception area planted with low level aglaonema which complement the sofas.
This project had to create a solution which combined high quality with subtlety and GP Plantscape successfully achieved this in its choice of containers and planting. The meeting rooms feature original paintings, expensive glassware and high quality furnishings so the selection of planters was critical to its success.
Our client commented ‘A vast improvement on the previous displays. The containers are just stunning and fit perfectly with the surroundings.’
