Ambius, the world’s largest interior landscaping company, took home 39 awards at this year’s AmericanHort’s International Plantscape Awards, held July 14, 2019 in Columbus, Ohio.

AmericanHort is North America’s largest organization of landscaping and horticultural professionals. The organization hosts the International Plantscape Awards annually, honoring outstanding interior plantscaping across North America. Projects are entered into one of 10 categories and then judged and awarded by veteran professional interior plantscapers.

Ambius’ installations ranging from living green walls and moss walls to replica and preserved designs, major renovations, and biophilic design were recognized at this year’s event. Overall interior landscaping projects range from offices to atriums, healthcare facilities, universities, retail stores, hotels, restaurants, transportation and convention centers, and cultural landmarks. Awards are presented to the lead project designer. The Ambius designers recognized are listed below.

While the beauty and aesthetic power of plants has long been recognized by businesses, incorporating plants and nature into indoor environments has never been more important to human health. In a 2018 study of 1,000 office workers, Ambius found that 35% spend a maximum of 15 minutes outside, excluding time spent commuting. An additional 13% spend a maximum of 30 minutes outside, while only 26% answered that they spend more than an hour outside each day.

Modern research shows that biophilic commercial spaces, those designed to connect humans with nature, can have dramatic health and wellness benefits, advancing the business through improved employee health, attendance, job satisfaction, and more. This is reflected in the rising prevalence of standards such as LEED, WELL Building, and FitWel, which all revolve around increasing the buildings abilities to positively impact the environment and health of its occupants.

“Helping our customers create spaces that enhance the well-being of people and highlight functional design has never been more important,” said John Myers, president and CEO of Rentokil North America, the parent company of Ambius. “We are honored to partner with our customers on these projects and are especially proud to receive recognition from our industry peers. These awards speak to the talent and vision of our designers, as well as our entire organization's commitment to world-class service.”
