Spire Shawfair Park Hospital

The Brief

Spire Shawfair Park Hospital, Edinburgh, opened its flagship site in March 2010 and now provides a superb range of private day care facilities. Ambius were invited to supply planting that would complement and enhance the experience of those visiting this new state of the art facility. The brief was to create a comfortable and enjoyable experience for it’s visitors, that would leave a lasting impression, but would also not interefere with the day to day activities of the hospital.

The Solution

A total of 18 displays were provided and each one was chosen to fulfil a specific requirement. Spathiphyllum plants were used for their softness and to create a calming effect for waiting patients. A Lollipop Ficus was used in the reception area to draw the theme of the exterior trees into the building. White containers with mixed planting and Anthuriums were used to add colour to dark areas. In the discharge lounge, Orchids were mass planted into copper coloured containers to create that ‘wow’ factor and leave that lasting impression Spires were looking for.

The Results

The client wanted to create a lasting impression with the use of planting without the plants interfering with the everyday running of the facility and Ambius managed to create this environment perfectly. Ambius worked closely with Spires to identify their needs and desires and in doing so ensured the designs were second to none. Each display in each area looks as though it belongs, which demonstrates great design and consultation. In April 2011, Ambius received an Efig Interior Landscaping Award for this inspiring design and installation.
