The swathe of green that envelops the bar from floor to ceiling will improve the bar’s indoor air quality by removing air pollutants and raising humidity levels.
The 60m2 of vertical vegetation provides both visual interest and environmental benefits, creating a more comfortable environment to work and relax in.
In keeping with the hotel’s New Zealand theme our green wall features an array of native New Zealand flora. The wall also has special significance to Tainui, who were a partner in the hotel’s development, nestled within the wall is Winika cunninghamii - an epiphytic orchid.
This orchid grew on a totara which was used to make the hull of a sacred waka belonging to Tainui people, and they named the canoe te winika after the orchid.
