The largest green wall in Queensland has been unveiled in Brisbane at the Breakfast Creek Lifestyle Precinct.
With over 340sqm of internal planting, a virtual “lung” has been created for the building and its occupants.
At a total height of 15m and more than 23m in length, the green walls contain over 27 different species of plants.
Importantly, the palette includes the top 6 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
Vertikal Design in collaboration with LSH Property Australia, Cottee Parker Architects and John Holland Group, were tasked with installing the wall at the new home for Mercedes Benz in Brisbane.
