Soaring five stories high, the series of three green walls are the tallest in the country, comprising a combined area of over 110 square metres. With over 5000 predominantly native plants, the walls’ design pattern features organic swathes of largely native plants with explosions of seasonal colour change.
“The green walls provide a wonderful visual appeal for residents of the rear apartment,” says Mr Harman. “Rather than looking at glass and concrete, they enjoy an ever-changing landscape of exciting colour and structure.”
A green wall of this size naturally came with challenges, the biggest being the podium which was to sit below to the green wall. The podium restricted all height access equipment due to weight exceedance. With hard work from the installation team, the walls went up without a hitch. However, no access equipment meant we had to come up with an innovative solution to care for the walls, and what better way than to abseil.
