Internal Living Green Wall In UK Green Building Council Offices

Acoustic value

They were planning a refurbishment of their central London office space and decided to include a green wall to improve the air quality and acoustics of the office

Exemplar office refurbishment

"At the beginning of 2016, we set out to deliver an exemplar small-scale, sustainable office refurbishment. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of our design team and the generosity of our suppliers, we now have an office that features innovative design and engineering solutions, showcases a low-carbon approach to construction, and provides a healthy space for our team, members and visitors."

The living wall really does look fantastic and has added hugely to the sense of wellbeing here in the UKGBC HQ. Thanks to all at Viritopia!

The Viritopia Living Wall was installed above some doorways forming a natural archway. Features over 1589 plants of 12 species - designed to support occupant wellbeing through biophillic design, whilst helping to improve the local air quality in the space.  

Moss Art

The office also included some preserved Viritopia Moss Art in the boardroom.
