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.
