Increase liveability and bring beauty to every space with Urban Canopee Australia’s innovative Canopee.
Committed to creating a cooler, more resilient and sustainable urban environment, Urban Canopee offer advanced solutions to help combat the effects of climate change. With over 60 canopee’s now doted across France, it’s no surprise that Australia will soon follow suit with its first installations.
The lightweight and modular frame of the Canopee are used in the rapid and cost-effective installation of living canopies in public and private spaces alike, as an aesthetic asset and to provide an innovative shade cover. With installations ranging for six months to 18 months old, the plant cover is starting to take shape on more and more projects. Depending on plant selection and conditions, Urban Canopee expect for the full cover to happen within three years from installation date.
The Covid crisis has highlighted the inherent need Australians have to engage with nature. The Canopee is a perfect way to green up and cool down spaces traditionally difficult to green up, connecting people back with nature. As beautiful as it is functional, the large, eye-catching design of the Canopee is sure to make to a statement in every space.
Urban Canopee’s values and vision are rooted in the concepts of biophilia (the innate human need for nature) and biomimicry (inspiration from nature's genius to create sustainable solutions), for those interested to learn more about those principles, Urban Canopee Australia's Germain Briand has recently done a presentation on these topics.
