Gymshark

Gymshark Gymshark is one of the fastest growing companies of all time, selling its unique sports apparel to over 150 countries worldwide. The company’s offices in Birmingham have been designed to accommodate their rapid growth and attract future talent.

The Brief

Gymshark had gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure that its offices reflect the company’s commitment to health, fitness and wellbeing. Adding biophilic elements was a natural progression, and Plant Plan was delighted to be invited to come up with creative planting ideas that would complement the overall vibe.

Scope of Project

This building was a major step forward for Gymshark. The space allows the team to choose how, when and where they work by offering a range of settings designed to enhance wellbeing. We worked on a number of areas, starting with the huge 6.5-metre Bucida (Black Olive) tree, which was installed in the building’s atrium into a custom-made planter that melds seamlessly with the company’s innovative amphitheatre seating.

This installation had to be craned into position. We also supplied a range of innovative planters. These included Gabion Cube wheeled planters with white cobbles; mobile mixed planting screens for privacy; geometric concrete block planters filled with succulents; built-in troughs between workstations planted with Fictus Nitida ball on stem trees; and bespoke window planters. Completed on a tight time frame, the planting successfully softens the industrial feel of the Gymshark office, while contributing significantly to its health ethos.
