This Land Securities Office and Marketing Space is designed by ESA Architects, located in Leeds, United Kingdom.
Bamboo flooring has been used, delivering a low-cost, hardwearing alternative to hardwood.
Commenting on the project, creative director of ESA Nic Sampson said: "The living wall is an organizing device which threads its way through the office, functioning as a dual working and marketing space. It establishes a strong theme that Land Securities staff and visitors can identify with. They have immediately taken the new space to their hearts and pride in their environment is evident in the way in which they are tending it and the way they show off their facilities to visitors."

This Riva Hotel is designed by Foster and Partners, located in London, United Kingdom.
The rooms are contained within six pavilions, linked by bridges and wrapped in a unifying glass envelope, which acts as a barrier to aircraft noise. The entrance lobby has a floating glass deck with views down to the sunken restaurant level, shallow pool and waterfall. This restaurant floor is accessed via a timber walkway and incorporates a business centre, as well as a variety of venues to eat and drink. The double-height conference facilities, which have their own reception to allow separate access from street-level, encircle a top-lit atrium that brings natural light deep into the building and down to the lower levels.
Foster + Partners' design for a new five-star hotel on Bath Road, close to Heathrow Airport has been approved by the Mayor of London. The only five-star hotel in the area, it will offer a range of services, including the most extensive conference facilities of any London hotel, to serve the local community and businesses, as well as passengers using Heathrow.
