Australasian Leisure Management Magazine recently featured Vertikal’s latest project for the Breakfast Creek Lifestyle Precinct.
Queensland’s largest green wall has recently been unveiled as part of a $100 million-plus glass-fronted building at Brisbane’s Breakfast Creek Lifestyle Precinct.
A key feature of a luxury Mercedes-Benz dealership – the auto manufacturer’s largest development of its kind in the southern hemisphere the green wall acts as a virtual ‘lung’, consisting of over 340 metres² of internal planting covering a total height of 15 metres and more than 23 metres in length.
With over 27 different species of plants, the palette includes the top six species that have been scientifically proven to reduce the largest number of VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) found present in the air.
Irrigation for the plants is harvested from rainwater tanks on the roof of the building and in an Australian-first on a project of this scale, LED Grow lighting supports the growth of the plants where there may be a variance in light levels internally.
