Interface are a global commercial flooring company with an integrated collection of carpet tiles and resilient flooring. Their new UK headquarter office has been dubbed ‘The Greenhouse’ as it re-defines what is possible with nature from ten stories above ground.
Every square foot of The Greenhouse is unique, with sustainable furniture and views over Birmingham city centre. Interface and their designer, Overbury, approached Vantage Spaces to supply a stunning biophilic feature for their new location.
Interface wanted to create a space with a wow factor. The company designs a range of commercial flooring solutions, each taking inspiration from natural environments. Their designer, Overbury, wanted to reflect the wider environments that inspired Interface’s products throughout their office design.
Overbury wanted the staff at Interface to feel as if they are working above the clouds, so they situated different working and meeting areas close to the windows, and even integrating café-style high seating into the windows themselves. Nature plays a key role in Interface’s floor designs, so bringing biophilia into their office space was very important. Vantage Spaces were tasked with providing this.
Vantage Spaces provided and installed a beautiful Wisteria Tree for Interface. On entering their new office, you’re met with the tree sprouting from the kitchen island, its vines and flowers intertwined with feature lighting and the timber ceiling raft above.
Vantage Spaces wanted to create a central point of calm in a space that blends workspace with a design showroom. The pink hues of the wisteria contrast with the wooden finishes and teal greens used in the kitchen, to create a sense of peace and calm.
The location of the wisteria tree stands out in the office environment and amazes Interface’s staff, customers and visitors alike.
