Greening the city with the use of green / living walls has fast become a trend within Brisbane. Our subtropical climate is perfect for growing lush tropical foliage off buildings. As a result, many successful green walls are now popping up around Brisbane city.
Green walls originate from 1938 when Professor Stanley Hart White patented the ‘Vegetative-Bearing Architectonic Structure and System’. Since 1938, the name has since been shorted and green wall structure mechanics have been refined to aid installation.
There are many articles that talk about green and living walls and the scientific benefits of why every building should have one. The researched benefits include improving air quality, adding installation (heating / cooling) for buildings, and visual enhancement.
Some recent and upcoming green walls that Penfold Projects has been involved with include the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Trafalgar Residences, Peak Apartments, South City Square, Aveo Clayfield, and a private residence in New Farm. Alternative methods of green walls could be achieved through the trellising system, which our team has installed at Trafalgar Residences, and Fenton on Fenton.
