We were commissioned to design and build an indoor garden in the reception at the new European Headquarters of Hitachi Capital (UK) Ltd. Our brief was simple; create a low maintenance garden as a focal point for their staff and visitors.

The vertical granite Palisades rising out of a sea of gravel, represent Hitachi’s market leading ‘City Blueprint’ initiative. Their global presence is depicted by the granite sphere. The addition of cloud planting round the base of the Palisades reminds us of our collective responsibility to environmental sustainability, by highlighting the close relationship between man made cities and nature. The white ring was specially commissioned for this project and is made in one solid unit.
