Project: Pura Vida Las Olas, Miami

Pura Vida was created by husband and wife to serve as a place for friends and family to gather and eat delicious food. The brand created spaces to feel like an extension of their own home with a menu packed full of organic and local ingredients.

Location: Pura Vida Las Olas – 221 SW 1st Ave Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301. Situated at the Society Las Olas building.


The Client’s Challenge

This client wanted a private, comfortable health-minded restaurant setting that offered a high-end look while creating a fun, intimate dining experience. Creating a commercial space like this is challenging for clients as their customers often want privacy from the street while also having both an open and refreshing experience once inside.

The Jay Scotts Solution

Using planters was the perfect solution for this client, allowing them to introduce a rainforest of botanical design into a potentially lifeless commercial space.

Rectangular planters created a natural divide which is perfect for restaurants and cafes that want to carve out useful and inviting spaces on their patio. These lush patios decorated with plants are proven to draw more foot traffic than other non-organic decor solutions and can increase the perceived value of products and services by 25%.

Working closely with the client and their brand, we settled on 10 Badalonas Rectangular Planters in gloss bright white to create a vibrant perimeter. White, of course, is a beautifully clean and professional color, and an excellent choice for the well-being of outdoor plants as it reflects the sun and its heat – excellent for patrons too!

The Client’s Result

The Pura Vida Las Olas restaurant was the 9th to be designed in the brand’s signature Instagram-worthy aesthetic. Characterized by minimalist design elements and natural tones to create a bright and airy space, the client successfully launched this location at the end of 2021 with a huge turnout.

With an outside aesthetic that is absolutely stunning, it’s no wonder that most customers flock to the outdoor seating area as a daily ritual of healthy eating in a healthy environment.

Products Used

10 Wannsee Round planters were also used on the inside of the patio as accent pieces and as entrance markers to create intrigue in a wholly biophilic design concept. A matte charcoal finish was the perfect color complement for the brand. Adding a cool color like charcoal appeals to the ever-popular and professional minimalist style of decor while connecting with the natural wood colors of the furniture and other branding.

Using modern minimalist planters like the Wannsee and Badalona offered enough room in the commercial design scape for the lush greens of healthy thriving plants – denoting one of the cornerstones and appeal of the client’s brand – health and wellbeing.

A Closer Look – The Jay Scotts Difference

From the outside, the restaurant is immediately eye-catching. The grey minimalist architecture is suddenly interrupted by the lush green beauty and inviting tranquillity that only plants can offer.

The Benefits Of Pots In A Patio

The Jay Scotts planters featured in Pura Vida’s patio were the perfect home for luscious parlour palms. While not many planters on the market are durable enough to contain trees, Jay Scotts planters will be in professional service for years to come. Now the patio at Pura Vida is heaving while still offering a private and sophisticated setting for casual dining – al fresco!

Patio Trends

This style of patio dining is a trend that is growing. The National Restaurant Association’s 2021 Industry report showed that 56% of casual dining and 62% of fine dining businesses expanded outdoor space since the pandemic started. Installing a patio is a great way to attract new diners and stand out from your competitors.
