Office Studio

For a downtown Sarasota office, Dane Spencer designed a green screen to shield from heat and harsh sunlight.

The arbor fills several needs: business identity, shade to augment building cooling and a barrier to soften harsh direct sunlight in the studio space.


A deep-blue arbor of blue-green, yellow and orange kalanchoe thyrisifloria creates the perfect eye-catching effect to draw in business, while keeping the office cool with reduced glare.

  • Equipped with drip irrigation, making watering a snap
  • Powder-coated aluminum arbor provides an eye-catching yet pleasing grid for structure of the potted kalanchoe
  • Kalanchoe requires very little maintenance and enjoys the full eastern sun exposure
