Nespresso at the Houzz of 2018
Houzz, the number one online destination for sharing home design ideas and expertise, brought to life the Houzz of 2018, a concept ‘pop-up’ house with five stories of immersive and interactive design. Working with Nespresso, Hayford & Rhodes breathed organic life into the fifth-floor café, celebrating the Nespresso Limited Edition range, the Origins of Coffee.
Using the tropical, equatorial roots (literally!) of coffee as our inspiration, we created an inside living wall of over 210 different plants to bring an earthy, natural feel to the space, and to reflect the botanical origins of the plant.
Our inspiration was to bring the lushness of the jungle inside, creating depth, texture and a sense of adventure to the Nespresso cafe. We also wanted it to be a space where guests could relax and unwind.
We brought in some of our favourite tropical plants, such as Silvery Ann (Scindapsus Pictus), an evergreen climber. Begonia Rex in Red Tango and Evening Glow brought colour and depth to the greenery, with heart-shaped, ruby red, dark plum and silvery pink leaves with an irresistible, iridescent and silky texture. Our planted wall, measuring a mighty 3m x 2m, took three of our expert floral designers a total of five hours to build.
