Transformation of RAND Europe’s Office Space with Innovative Plant Designs

Case Study Details

Client: RAND Europe, Cambridge

Product: Office plants

Industry: Research and analysis

RAND Europe, a not-for-profit research institute based in Cambridge, recently embarked on a mission to revamp its office space to create a more inviting, collaborative, and aesthetically pleasing environment for its team of researchers and staff.

To accomplish this transformation, Aztec Plants collaborated with Workplace Consultants, a leading interior design firm, and Habit Action, an experienced fitout contractor.

The project encompassed a 15,000 sqft office space, requiring a comprehensive approach to create a harmonious and invigorating workspace.

Aztec Plants introduced innovative plant designs as the central theme of the project. The highlight of the design was the integration of plant containers into the office raised floor, creating a unique atmosphere where it seemed as though plants were organically growing from the floor.

One of the primary challenges we faced was the shallow planting depth within the raised floor. To ensure the plants thrived, we designed bespoke containers that were not only sturdy but also leak-resistant, preventing any potential damage to the office space.

We have also developed custom and lightweight hanging artificial plants installations, designed to seamlessly fit into the existing light fixtures. These installations not only added a touch of greenery but also contributed to sound absorption, enhancing the office’s acoustic environment.

To complete the overall design, we incorporated standing planters, providing a contemporary and visually pleasing contrast to the raised floor installations. These planters complemented the overall aesthetic while offering a functional space for additional greenery.
