Design & Build: A Collaboration of Expertise

Building companies typically plan for most aspects of a building during the first fix stage, which involves laying the foundation, erecting the main structure, and installing essential elements like plumbing and electrical systems.


We understand the importance of laying the foundations to accommodate biophilic design elements and planted structures. We work closely with builders to consider second-fix options for including planted furniture in a building project:

Client Preference or Late Decision: Sometimes, the client might finalise the design details, including the specific type of planted furniture, after the first fix stage. This could be due to ongoing discussions, budget considerations, or wanting to see examples in completed projects.

Flexibility and Customisation: Planted furniture can be quite diverse, ranging from planters integrated into desks to living walls. Second-fix options allow for greater flexibility in design and customisation to fit the specific needs and aesthetics of the client's space.

Logistical Challenges: Large, pre-built planted furniture might be difficult to maneuver during the first fix stage, especially in tight spaces. Second-fix options allow for easier installation after the major construction is complete and access is less restricted.

​Plant Maintenance Considerations: Integrating plants directly into furniture during the first fix stage could make it more challenging to access them for future maintenance like watering, pruning, or pest control. Second-fix planted furniture often incorporates removable planters or modular designs for easier maintenance.

Integration with Existing Infrastructure: If the building is undergoing a renovation, second-fix planted furniture allows for easier integration with existing electrical outlets, water sources, or drainage systems needed for plant life support.

Benefits of Considering Second-Fix Options:

Greater Design Flexibility: Allows for customisation based on finalised client preferences.

Easier Installation: Simplifies maneuvering and placement of planted furniture.

Improved Plant Maintenance: Provides easier access for watering, pruning, etc.

Reduced Damage Risk: Less chance of damaging plants during major construction phases.

The Allure of Second-Fix Planted Furniture:

Cultivating Beauty After the Build


Imagine an office space that transcends the sterility of traditional design. Lush greenery seamlessly integrated into furniture, breathing life and vibrancy into the very heart of your workspace. This isn't a scene from a nature documentary, but a reality achievable through the strategic use of second-fix planted furniture.

While the first fix of a building project lays the groundwork, the second fix allows for the finer details to take shape. This is where the magic of planted furniture truly blossoms. Here's why this approach might be the perfect fit for your next building project:

  • A Flourishing Canvas: Finalised design decisions and late-stage inspiration can be embraced. Second-fix options allow for the perfect planted furniture to be chosen, the finishing touch that reflects your unique vision.

  • Bespoke Beauty: Unlike a one-size-fits-all approach, second-fix solutions celebrate customisation. From integrated desk planters to captivating living walls, the possibilities are as endless as your imagination.

  • Logistical Elegance: Large pre-built pieces can be cumbersome during the first fix. Second-fix planted furniture ensures a smooth installation process, minimising disruption and maximising efficiency.

  • Thriving Throughout Time: Thoughtful placement becomes effortless. Planted furniture installed during the second fix offers optimal access for maintenance, ensuring your verdant oasis flourishes for years to come.
