Mark Paul, Horticulturist and Director of The Greenwall Company said, “They form a continuous green spine down the core of the building. A green lung and wild place to traverse while using the stairs between the floors.”
The Greenwall Company builds its walls from 94 per cent of recyclable materials that would otherwise be destined for landfill, taking the benefit of their greenwalls beyond just their aesthetic appeal.
To date, The Greenwall Company has built hundreds of greenwalls across Australia and overseas. Over the past 20 years Mark has tested, changed, designed and mastered his greenwalls to ensure they will last the lifetime of the building on which they are installed.
As well as providing an instant, textural green solution to architectural facades, additional benefits of a greenwall include thermal insulation, improved air quality, reduced noise and increased acoustics. There are over 30 different greenwall applications currently available, providing varying façade loadings, affects and cost benefits.
“Another fact to note is that there are many endanger plant and animal species which people have never heard of. Our greenwalls are grown with epiphytic and lithophytic plants which provide some of the endangered species with a home in order to preserve their existence.”
The Greenwall Company is constantly endeavouring to bring greenwalls and roofs to a new level of integration within the building industry to reclaim the built environment.
“My goal is to reclaim the built environment. This Origin project takes us just one step closer to reaching this goal,” said Mark.
The Origin project is located at Exhibition Street, Melbourne.
