Knight Frank is an estate agency that was founded in London and now has 27 offices Australia-wide. They specialise in commercial and residential real estate and their Sydney office needed to portray a picture of ultimate professionalism, reflecting the core values of the business. Knight Frank previously had real greenery in their offices however it proved problematic with the extremely common bug infestations that real greenery can bring with it. They wanted a unique greenery fit out that would bring vibrancy to their workplace and inspire employees to harnish their creativity when it comes to developing client solutions. Modern companies require modern office spaces where employees can feel supported, motivated and encouraged to perform to their best professional ability. The aesthetic of a space plays a huge role in the kind of atmosphere it emits and that's why Knight Frank contacted Evergreen Walls to enhance their workspace with beautiful, low maintenance greenery.
Knight Frank was having issues with their real greenery as it was constantly attracting bugs and insects. This can become extremely problematic in corporate environments as they are very difficult to be rid of. Infestations are incredibly common with real indoor foliage and so our artificial greenery was the perfect corporate solution, providing all of the aesthetic appeal of real greenery but none of the hassle. Employees can become uncomfortable and frustrated when bugs are present in an office environment and Evergreen helped to rectify this issue.
Knight Frank also wanted a custom greenery solution with installation and design assistance, which we were happily able to provide. Evergreen Walls offers a complete service when it comes to commercial installations, headed by experienced project managers and installation teams.
We used a combination of different plants including the Calathea plant in green burgundy, our Pothos plant and the Philodendron bush. We also used a selection of hanging vines, bushes and stems, including lavender and our super versatile Hosta bush. Our products allowed Knight Frank to showcase a beautiful office to clients, while maintaining the comfort and ease that artificial greenery provides.
The results were stunning and our client was extremely happy with the greenery installation. Our products look incredibly realistic and just as good, if not better than the real greenery that was previously used in Knight Frank's office. In this particular case, the return on investment is huge. Knight Frank no longer have to worry about work disruptions due to pest infestations attracted by real foliage. They also need not worry about difficult maintenance requirements that come with large greenery installations. The setup of their previous greenery required lengthy time consumptions simply to water the greenery as it was set in several different small pots and hanging from wire infrastructure. We replaced these plants with artificial ones and now they never have to worry about watering multitudes of plants again!
