The quality of the work environment matters. When people are happy and comfortable they’re motivated and more productive. But too many offices are still dreary soulless places. Better design, layout and splashes of colour help to create a lighter mood that makes the working day better for everyone.

The bad old days of the cubicle are slowly giving way to a different kind of workspace. Thanks to lightweight, portable laptops people move around more easily and just touch down and work anywhere they can.¬†Offices are becoming more open plan and less formal, but there’s still so much glass and steel. The addition of a green wall can really mix things up and create a different kind of feel and mood.

A living wall is a neat touch, either on the outside of the building or inside the office itself. Combined with effects like water features, they help to bring a touch of nature to the heart of the city and right into the workplace. They’re natural, colourful and uplifting. Who knew that such a simple idea could be so effective?

And what better way to make use of some rooftop space than turning into a sky high garden at the top of the building? A little imagination goes a long way. It’s a clever take on a hedge that merges office space and a garden to stunning effect. Add some green and breathe new life into the office environment. Get creative with walls that are actually alive. They help to make the office a nicer place to be.
