We created a tropical jungle, indoors and out, for an exciting new market space in Hackney: Mare Street Market.

The site was not complete when this post was first published, but the photos here give a taste of what is to come (and how we found it on arrival).

How We Found It

The client said: “We want palms THIS big!”


They arrived all bundled up for the cold weather!


Inside we could explore less hardy options.

The indoor plants are from Arnott & Mason.

The giant tree ferns, palms and outdoor plants are from the Palm Centre.

The troughs will be mounted 3m up, on all the walls and pillars.

We used specialist lightweight green roof growing media from our soil-heroes at Bourne Amenity, to provide that elusive happy medium of free draining yet moisture-retaining structure for the roots.
