Pan Pacific London

The Brief


Pan Pacific invited Leaflike to assist with their Sustainability Solutions featuring Singaporean Rainforest and British Woodland Plants.


The Sustainability Solution includes the following eight items:

– Extra Green and Healthy Hydroculture System
– Increased Cardon Dioxide Removal
– Unique Recycled Planters
– Orchid Rejuvenation Program
– Leaflike Herb System, for Decoration & Cooking
– Recycled Glassware
– Preserved Moss Feature Displays
– Personal Green Certification for Pan Pacific London


As the partnership progressed Leaflike were introduced to Yabu Pushelburg receiving final interior landscape designs.


“While the guestrooms reference the calm of English and Asian gardens, the public areas will draw from the wild energy of the forest, to inspire a striking yet timeless atmosphere.”


The Solution


The design includes all areas of the hotel; bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, dining and private dining rooms, bar, reception lobby, galleries, lift lobbies, meeting rooms, rest rooms, gym and terrace areas, supplying:

– Over 300 sustainability sourced preserved plants
– Over 300 recycled planters
– Over 450 live planting displays


Some highlights of the final plants installed include:

– Floor standing planting display with bun moss to reflect Singaporean Rainforest interweaved with British Woodland theme
– Bespoke Hand-crafted planters made from recycled materials
– Use of sustainable preserved planting where live planting wasn’t a possibility
– Plants: Strelizia nicolai tuft, Aglaonema Stripes and Philodendron selloum, to name a few

All products are supplied with sustainability in mind and include:
– Recycled and upcycled materials
– Healthy Hydroculture Planting
– Orchid Rejuvenation Program
– Leaflike Herb System, for Decoration & Cooking

Leaflike, sustainability in every project.


We are on a quest to help customers with sustainable options. Leaflike green walls can also be made with sustainable materials including natural moss from woodland floors and recycled timber from builders pallets.


Leaflike started a 40/40 initiative, planting 40 trees a year which in turn will provide 40 tonnes of carbon reduction over the next 40 years. Additional initiatives are being considered for next year to encourage customers to purchase sustainable products.


Additional information about the group:


“In our continuing ambition to globalise our green efforts, we opened Singapore’s iconic, award-winning green hotel PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering in 2013. Featuring a unique hotel-in- a-garden concept, this hotel seamlessly blends environmental principles with elements of nature throughout the property with innovative sustainability features such as:
– 15,000 square metres of lush greenery which constitutes more than twice the hotel’s total land area
– 51% of guestroom corridors reminiscent of attractive garden spaces
– Singapore’s first zero-energy sky gardens powered by 60kWp solar cells
– Minimisation of water usage through rain harvesting and the use of NEWater
– Regulation of the use of precious resources using light, motion and rain sensors”


“In North America, Pan Pacific Seattle’s PanEarth sustainability programme continues to lead our conservation efforts. Its zero-impact policy offers guests the option of carbon-neutral stays by purchasing credits for the generation of clean wind energy. The hotel matches, dollar-for- dollar, all guest donations towards renewable energy credits.”
