24 Mar Case Study: Plant Design Meets ADA Standards
Design by Casey Shmaltz
Plant Interscapes works with organizations to not only add live plants and containers to look great, but meet their bottom line.
Benefits of plants in the work place
For property managers, live plants increase productivity and the well being for their tenants. Office plants not only add to the aesthetics of the environment, but lowers workplace stress. Hotel plants actually increase revenue per guest.
Plants have many great benefits for the workplace in all types of environments. In addition, plants help organizations meet building standards like in this next case.
Case Study: Avenida Guadalupe meets ADA standards
In this case, I collaborated with the building architect to ensure the plant design matched with the interior architecture features of sharp, geometric shapes.
The orange color of the crotons highlight the interior paint colors with a pop of orange and yellow.
In the end, the design needed to be approved by the appropriate agencies to ensure meeting ADA (Americans with Disabilities) standards. The non-profit had ADA standard issues with their staircase. I put a design together that created a safety barrier for vision-impaired visitors by using our earth walls, while displaying colorful crotons that matched the interior décor.
The multiplicity of plants are endless – – functionality, beauty, and even for safety purposes!
