Grind Coffee Interior Plant Design Project
In the beginning of this year, we had the exciting opportunity to design the interior plant scheme for Grind Coffee in Greenwich. The beautiful space offers an all day restaurant, cocktail bar as well as a tropical garden space.
Grind Coffee's Interior Plant Scheme
In the beginning of this year, we had the exciting opportunity to design the interior scheme for Grind Coffee in Greenwich. The beautiful space offers an all day restaurant, cocktail bar as well as a tropical garden space.
Creating a tranquil, relaxing environment for customers to enjoy
Taking into consideration the functionality of the space
Due to the functionality of the space, it was really important for us to choose hardy plants that can withstand the overhead kitchen heat. We therefore curated a mix of Monsteras, Pothos, Philodendron and Aglaonemas, that would still thrive in the harsh conditions of a restaurant.
Full foliage plants for a lush green effect
We also chose different sizes of plants to create a full and lush effect - species like the Bird of Paradise and Kentia Palm. The statement plants we decided to go for were around 2 meters tall and really creates a wow moment in the space.
Using trailing planters overhead to create a feeling of being enveloped in nature
We continued by locating planter boxes around the bar and kitchen with beautiful trailing plants that made these otherwise forgotten areas stand out with its jungle-like plants. This overall design really gives the impression of being surrounded by nature all throughout the entire restaurant.
Using low-light & artificial plants
Lastly, it was important for us to bring some greenery into the very low to no light areas with artificial plants. To make it look as realistic as possible, we chose to go for a mix of artificial Ferns, String of pearls, and Monsteras. It's always a good idea to go for high quality artificial plants in places with limited light. Our recommendation is to mix real plants with artificial plants in spaces with varying light levels. This means the fake plants become almost unnoticable in the grand scheme of the plant design when looking at it as a whole.
It was amazing to see the restaurant come together with all the greenery both inside and outside. The mix of trailing and statement plants really created some special, beautiful and quiet pockets within the busy restaurant for people to enjoy and relax.
