North American Headquarters

2022 International Plantscape Awards – PLATINUM Award Winning Project 

Natura was selected by an international home furnishings retailer needing to make the return-to-work more alluring at its North American headquarters. The central 3-story atrium lobby was identified as an ideal location for a high-impact biophilic element to welcome their people back.

A 46’ tall by 8’ wide preserved moss wall was determined to be the most attractive solution. After several rounds of design conversations, a natural pattern with mixed pole moss, fern moss and dark sheet moss was selected.

The 368 square foot display was laid out with the design hand sketched onto backer boards. 24 panels measuring 2’-8” x 5’-8” were cut, numbered, and individually fabricated. Upon completion, each panel was wrapped, boxed, and shipped to the headquarters location.

The design fabricator loaded supplies and flew to the site with a local company selected to assist on the installation. With the use of a 45’ scissor lift, and challenging maneuvering around hanging light fixtures, the installation was completed in a day and a half. The client was ecstatically pleased with the outcome.

From the client— “Biophilic design and the wellbeing of our coworkers were important elements when designing the new collaborative workspace. We wanted the coworkers to feel comfortable and invited back to the office the moment they entered the space. The incredible 46-foot moss wall is a wow factor and brings nature into the entire office spanning all three floors. The coworkers have been excited with the redesign and the ability to connect with one another again.”
