Case study: Leaflike reaches new heights in Damac Tower

Working with Versace Home in Damac Towers, Leaflike was invited to provide the biophilic design elements within the stunning Versace branded apartment building…

With interiors characterised by stone, terracotta and glass, all the elements in Damac Tower have been brought together by the Versace Home studio in a distinctive world-class design to create an inspiration in luxury living, inside and out. The unique and balanced architectural composition has been carefully crafted to create impressive views from every aspect of the building. With this in mind Leaflike was asked to provide the planting displays throughout the main lobby, the spa reception, pool area and residents lounge.

A selection of floor standing designer interior live planting in grey cylinder pots with slate top dressing include: Areca Palm, Licuala Grandis, Strelitzia Nicolai with underplanting, Kentia Palm Musa Tropicana and Chamaedorea Elegans.

In the entrance and lobby, the high gloss marble and plush Versace seating is both contrasted with and complemented by the Leaflike planting. Each element within the planting scheme has been handpicked within the design and placed inside colour matching planters, ranging from square white planters to round grey planters. Whether they blend subtly into the background of the interior design within The Grand Lobby or create a showstopper within The Residents Lounge.

Hints of gold run through the Versace Home interior, and these elements are mirrored in the vases of fresh orchids featuetred as table centres. The plants provide a warm welcome while continuing the sophisticated ambience throughout, and at the same time contributing to the wellbeing of the residents, by introducing elements from the natural world into a quintessentially urban space.

Introducing biophilic elements into design was important throughout the building. Specifically placed for residents to enjoy, the clusters of plants are effortlessly situated for a natural feel around the loungers and jacuzzi area with luxury design in every corner, while the mirrored ceilings continue to complement and reflect the design. The range of plants from tall to small, showcase against the neutral colour palette of the VERSACE HOME floral wall mural designs, matching the floor of the pools and lounger fabrics. Plants are placed around every pillar down the length of the pool providing the perfect backdrop.

Leaflike worked closely with the designers and building owners to provide a turn-key package for Damac Tower, which included careful specification of planting to suit the various areas of the building including the luxury pool and spa areas. The plantings are all fitted with semi-hydroculture systems to ensure they stay healthy and looking just as amazing as always in the unique high temperature areas. The installation was meticulously planned, with Leaflike operations team seamlessly installing every plant, ensuring that the outcome was as visualised.
