Living or green walls on the external of office buildings are becoming increasingly popular and it’s easy to see why. Apart from the aesthetic reasons, they create green spaces in concrete cities, absorb pollution and attract insects and other wildlife, all of which are good for our environment. But why restrict green walls to the outside? Probably unbeknown to most, offices can also harbour air pollution, created by various toxins in certain types of furniture. One wall can contain up to 1000 plants which filter the air and create energy-rich oxygen. Living walls can also create acoustic barriers. Many of today’s offices are open plan and the noise levels can be high but the plants absorb some of this sound which would otherwise bounce of hard surfaces.
The physiological benefits can also be huge with green walls being seen as having relaxing and calming, therapeutic effects. This can result in higher productivity which ultimately improves business.
