Waitakere Architects approached GreenAir to design a plantscape solution for a new commercial building for which resource consent required a green element. This was achieved with a hydroponic green wall 13m high and 2.7m wide on the building's exterior.
Design challenges included the wall facing into the fierce North Westerly winds and low light levels to the bottom section due to an awning above the entrance. 900 plants were carefully selected and tested to suit the site. The building front- age now has a strong weather proof green focal point. The Green Wall is the main element of the facade's architectural composition. The Hydroponic System supports a great diversity and density of plant species.
