The goal was to create an organic, natural looking, mixed green wall that would thrive in the environment and increase biodiversity.
The construction of roof top gardens and/or urban gardens can contribute not only to alleviating poor air quality in cities, but also increase sustainability of urban areas and improve overall quality of life.
City residents and businesses are looking for ways to reduce their environmental footprint and minimize smog and heat build-up during the summer. Plants can help by using up waste carbon gases in the atmosphere, a contributing factor to the greenhouse effect and various health issues (asthma, respiratory problems, etc).
Living roofs and walls – green roofs, roof terraces and roof gardens can provide additional living space and can bring the dual benefit of limiting the impact of climate change by keeping the city cooler while at the same time reducing energy use and carbon dioxide emissions. Living roofs also enhance biodiversity, reduce flood risk (by absorbing heavy rainfall), provide insulation and improve the appearance of our city.
This green wall provides a calm and relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of London’s busy west end. We have provided bird and bug boxes to attract local wildlife and to encourage biodiversity in the area. The contrast of greenery against the city backdrop is not only aesthetically pleasing it creates a multifunctional space for the building.
