Green wall

Living green wall provides a connection to nature when entering the building – increasing the ecological value of the building.

Green walls – also known as living walls and vertical gardens – is a descriptive term used in reference to all forms of vegetated wall surfaces.

In this case, the outdoor green wall has helped to increase the green infrastructure on site.

In addition to having a pleasant visual connection to nature at the entrance of the building, it improves on the biophilic design of the building and the biodiversity of the site.

This provides various combined benefits such as removing air pollutants and occupant health and well-being.
