This pair of offices located in Novi and Farmington Hills, Michigan offer their employees a modern workspace with living plants that help not only enhance the aesthetics of the office, but also help direct traffic patterns, separate offices, absorb noise and much, much more.
The photographs from this office help illustrate the many uses for plants beyond their pretty looks and air cleaning qualities!
A welcoming living wall with company branding greets visitors entering the building.
The wall also compliments the mural artwork at the offices entrance.
Our botanical bowls serve as a great accent for reception areas and lobbies. This was the November botanical arrangement for our monthly floral deliver program. Click here for more information.
As you walk through the office, there are many table top plants in sunset orange containers that correspond with the companies branding.
These are placed at chest level and help keep clutter from accumulating on top of file cabinets and also serve to accent the artwork displayed throughout the office.
The company coffee area has table top plants next to mobile station power outlets to allow separated mobile workspaces for those working on site for the day, or employees who need separate space to work with natural views.
As you move to the back of the office, there are more living wall segments lining the walls. This is a cost effective way to add plants without taking up floor space. These green wall segments are great for smaller offices still looking to make a greenery impact within their space.
This office really chose to maximize the use of alternative workspace. Creative Oasis’ such as these inspire brainstorming, creativity and allow areas for employees to escape and focus on one project.
Our goal is to never overwhelm an area with plants, but to enhance it by accenting the creative direction the interior designers and architects are moving towards.
This modern workspace is a great example of how an employer can utilize plants in a creative and smart way that not only makes the office look great, but effectively enhances the workspace.
