Aureo Case Study
Stunning landscaping achieved in fashionable WC1 building

Client objectives

The client wanted the finishing touches to their brand new, modern workspace on 8th and 9th floors in London WC1 to be no less inspiring. For the roof terrace on the 9th, the client wanted to completely replant 71 existing large empty planters and troughs and inside, something distinctive, corporate and classy was needed to complement and bring to life the cutting-edge new working environment.

Aureo’s solution

Working with an in-house Workplace Experience Specialist, our designers came up with a blend of exterior planting that included 2 species of hardy grasses for the troughs (Carex Evergold and Festuca Glauca), Olea europaea (Olive trees) for the largest planters and a mix of Skimmia Japonica ‘Rubella’ and Pittosporum Tobira for the medium and small planters.

Inside, using a brilliant mix of interesting shaped Polyrock planters in a distinctive riven concrete finish, an expert specification was designed – bearing in the mind the need for a range of attention-grabbing species and their positioning, sometimes in low light areas. Beaucarnea Recurvata, Sansevieria Zeylanica, Ficus Bonsai and Ficus Cyathistipula, all played their part – with a display of beautiful white orchids in a tall circular planter of woven banana fibres in the reception to crown the scheme.

The results

Aureo transformed a barren 9th floor roof terrace utilising the clients existing planters together with a brand new design-led specification for the interior. The installation, for all its logistical challenges, was highly successful. View the images in the gallery below to see the transformative effects.

This is just the sort of project in which Aureo excel; driven by demanding criteria but with enough slack to let loose our creativity, woven with our expertise in corporate horticulture. Given the various practical constraints, particularly with roof terrace planting and some areas of low light inside, the result was a well-balanced but transformative design that continues to mature and enhance the workspace of this client.

Thank you for all the work you and your team do, ensuring our plants are cared for and providing suitable replacements when required.
The installation was really smooth, and we are pleased with the new machine. Thanks for your time with this.  I will make sure we are in touch when the review of coffee machines happens.
I have been dealing with Aureo for many years, always found them to be competitively priced and easy to deal with, the customer service is always excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard and his team.
Thank you for the biscuits, what a suprise. Its always a pleasure doing business with Aureo.
The feedback is very positive; the staff appreciate the new options available and the pleasant new machines.
I just wanted to thank you for your hard work and support over the last couple of weeks during my absence in arranging for the installation of our new vending machines.
All has gone smoothly. Thank you for making our machine switch over so easy.
The coffee machines are operating very well and are a joy to clean as the process is so much easier than the previous models
Just a quick thank you for our new machine, it is proving to be quite the success! Thank you to you and Gary for your help and efficient service
The service we have received so far has been second to none and the quality of the drinks and the machine itself is of a really high quality. I’m just sorry it took us so long to get around to making a change with the hot drinks we provide to staff!
We have had the coffee machine installed now for less than a week on a trial basis.  I don’t think there’s any way our staff will let us hand this back now!
What a transformation!  Real plants in our new offices have been very enthusiastically received by all our staff and visitors and have created a positive improvement to the overall atmosphere.  Thank you Aureo!
Our bottled water has been supplied by Aureo for several years now. Their staff are friendly, they provide an efficient service and fast delivery. On many occasions, we have received our delivery within hours of ordering.
The plant displays and your service levels are a distinct improvement to our old provider – my only regret is that we didn’t switch earlier.
Having used Aureo’s services for some time, I have found them to be professional, prompt and always reasonably priced. Their service is very good and the new Flavia Coffee machine we have installed is a big hit with our customers.
I’m so sorry, I have just realised that I didn’t say a huge thank you for the wonderful plants that you arranged so quickly for us. Everyone was really impressed, they do look great. Thank you!
Aureo provide an excellent service. They always deliver our order next day without exception. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They have a wide selection of products to choose from which we can offer our clients. Thank you.
I just wanted to say thank you for our plants – they arrived this morning and look really good. I have already had comments from staff and also our building manager who may be contacting you regarding changing her supplier!
We have been using Aureo to provide hot water for our staff refreshments for the past two years; we have found this method an excellent alternative to boiling kettles which tend to be uneconomic and time wasting.
I have just arrived back in the office to see our new plants, they look very nice :) very pleased!! Thank you
Just wanted to say over the past four years, the service we have received from Aureo has been second to none.  We would thoroughly recommend Aureo as a company with first class customer service. Many thanks
