Project Drivers

living wall and green roofs on apartment building

This project had a range of problems to overcome, the sheer height of the building for one.  The building has 14 floors and the living wall covers a huge 220 square meters using over 24,600 plants.  The wall is maintained by the Viritopia team who have to abseil the wall.  The living wall also met with a green roof (also supplied by Viritopia) at the top.  The green roof is at a 45 degree slope for 6 metres before leveling out.
