The grand elegance of the Hyatt Regency’s building in Birmingham oozes high quality, and the hotel required a planting scheme of the same high standard for the impressive foyer.
The planting needed to compliment the traditional décor, but also bring a fresh, modern feel to the space. It also needed to enhance the vast, light mezzanine area without being overbearing.
A mixture of live and replica planting was chosen for the repeating planters along the mezzanine, with low, hanging plants and taller specimens creating a varied foliage which sits happily in the large space. A water feature in the foyer was planted with lush green foliage, providing a bright counterfoil to the simple grey fountain design.
Urban Planters Birmingham’s scheme was another of our many successes at our industry eFIG awards, winning a Gold Leaf in its category.
