Heriot Watt University

When Heriot Watt University started building new halls of residence in Galashiels, they opted for a very bright décor, using colours such as lime green, bright blue, hot pink and orange.

They then tasked Urban Planters Edinburgh to come up with a planting scheme for the communal lounges on each floor, and the reception balcony, which would sit happily among the bold kaleidoscope of colours.

In the three new buildings, Urban Planters has installed plant displays in clusters of three cylindrical pots in different heights.

The colours of the pots are as bright as their surroundings, complimenting the decor in some areas and contrasting in others. The same three specimens were used in each cluster of displays: Sansevieria, Dracaena fragrans ‘Lemon Lime’ and Yucca elephantippes.

Above the reception, a glass balcony needed a focal point and something to stop people walking into it! So, three curved troughs were selected in lime green, Dutch orange and hot pink and were planted with Sansevieria cilindrica, to create a vivid, sculptural focal point. The same look was replicated in the foyers of the two other buildings.
