Ikos Iberia – Andalusia, Spain

A beautiful modern hotel situated in Andalusia, Spain. Known for its moorish architecture and sun-soaked shores.

The Brief

Our customers expectations were very clear. The request was for a large natural trunk olive tree that looked just like the real thing but required no maintenance and no water. Although we are only a small team we have a global reach, and we couldn’t wait to get started on another project overseas working with such a fantastic new hotel.

Our Solution

Taking images of trunks from our trunk stock, we sent multiple options to our customer. We wanted them to be part of the design process, and also wanted to ensure they were happy before we moved to the next stage.  We always want our trees to look spectacular, so we spend time preserving the beautiful nature details live trunks have. Our FireSilx FR foliage was used to foliate the tree ensuring that the tree is safe for use in the public setting. As this tree was travelling to Spain, we took special measuring to ensure that it could be broken down to fit on a series of pallets, but easily put back up at the other end.

The Outcome

Once installed the olive tree really brought the space to life. It was the perfect addition to finish off the beautiful interior of the new hotel, ad very in keeping with the region that the hotel is in. We love to hear good feedback, and this occasion was no different. Our customer was very happy with the service and the product. We have since visited this fabulous hotel and the tree still looks as great as it did when it left us.
