Technology giants seem to be leading the charge in creating more relaxing and natural environments for their workers, and indoor plants and trees are key to this growing demand for biophilic workplace design.

Fully signed up to the health benefits of having plants in the workplace, Amazon wanted to ensure everyone had a view of greenery wherever they are in the office.

The office houses development teams, where work is intensive and employees rotate shifts around the clock.

Urban Planters Scotland created a homely feel using a mixture of greenery and containers to take the edge off the intensity of the work and add to the many proven positive effects of having planting in the workplace.

To create the desired relaxed aesthetic, we mixed different specimens in a variety of containers to form informal clusters of plants.
