Custom Designs!

Cityscapes created custom succulent designs and custom Living Art rotations for our client in Cambridge, Massachusetts.   The unique creations are displayed in shell pots in the main lobby of the location.  The pots are made with actual shells that are cleaned and polished and then finally applied to a resin or wooden base.  This gives them a spectacular finish with a sleek look that will make your office plants stand out!

Cityscapes and Pot a Plant!

Members of the Cityscapes team volunteered at the Pot a Plant event for the Special Olympics on Saturday June 7, 2014.  Pot a Plant took place at Harvard University and was full of fun!  Emily Sills and Joellen Prescott joined Cityscapes President, Jan Goodman and her daughter, Olivia to teach plant care to everyone involved.  All participants got their very own plant to take home and learned how to take care of them!

Biophilic Design – The New Standard?

Original Design:

 

Biophilic Design:

With so much focus on minimalism in interior design these days, a refreshing movement toward ‘biophilic design’ is gaining popularity every day.

Many architects and clients alike seem to be over-appreciating the concept of white space, clean lines and beauty in nothingness.  And while it is hard not to appreciate these new-aged, semi-futuristic interior spaces, it is also easy to lose sight of a core architectural design concept: blurring the lines between inside and out.

Some may think that large glass curtain-walls with views to every direction on a compass get the job done, but why not take it one step further?  Bring the environment outside into your interior space so you can see, hear, smell, and touch nature while indoors.

For a more in-depth look at ‘biophilic design,’ take a look at the links below.

Boston Properties Makes Atlantic Wharf Even Greener.

Boston Properties’ Atlantic Wharf, a building that was dubbed ‘Boston’s first green skyscraper,’  has gotten even greener this past week.  The LEED Platinum certified building contracted Cityscapes, in coordination with Green Living Technologies, to give their main lobby quite the facelift.  Images above include the 7 living walls that reach up to 17 feet high.  Also new planters now surround the elegant fountains residing at the atrium’s center.

Featured in the images is Cityscapes’ owner Jan Goodman with Leo Baez, Tony Lobo, Adam Nagle and Barrett Cooke of Boston Properties.

Genzyme Center Gardens

Genzyme Center’s LEED Platinum Certification is the highest level available.  This ‘green’ building employs countless techniques to maximize energy efficiency.  From computer-controlled window blinds maximizing natural light and controlling radiant heat gain, to green roofs reducing the urban location’s ‘heat island’ effect, this building is a living organism.

Live plant gardens on every floor provide not only a peaceful area to work or take a break, but also improve the relative humidity levels of the space.  These gardens also supplement the building’s air cleaning systems by purifying the air, lowering CO2 levels, and decreasing the amount of ambient volatile organic compounds.

Genzyme runs public tours for those who want to experience the nature of this dynamic building and it’s gardens that are maintained by, that’s right, Cityscapes.

To help bring your space to life, call Cityscapes today.

Take a look at what GM of Sydney’s Green Design, Rudy Ursem, has to say about the benefits of live plants compared to their plastic counterparts.

Green Design allows customers to ‘hire’ plants for office spaces in the Syndey area.
