‘Enrich the interior with contemporary finishes that enhance the enduring character and reinforce The Gyle as a premium shopping destination.’
Benholm provided specialist input for the greenery required to soften the space and bring the planting element of biophilic design into the project. By working seamlessly with the architects, main contractor Clark Contracts, and the Gyle Centre management team, we ensured the project was completed on time and to budget despite a challenging installation.
All work was carried out at night to ensure the Gyle Centre could function normally during the day and planting was installed at high level using specialist equipment by our highly trained team.
High level trailing foliage from bespoke suspended troughs created a stunning effect in the central atrium stairwell.
Not one, but two, huge green walls with an attractive mix of artificial foliage and preserved Nordik Moss graced the entrance atriums. The varied green foliage really sets of the retail branding for a stunning, welcoming effect.
A number of live planters were scattered throughout the centre and are built into the seating units to provide comfortable relaxing rest areas for shoppers to enjoy as part of their inspirational retail experience.
