A houseplant or two can really liven up a home, but Swedish company Greenworks strives to go several steps further. Their specialty is creating customized indoor living walls bursting with plants for homes and offices. Greenworks’ walls – and their smaller living green decorations – not only spruce up the normally cold, lifeless walls of buildings; they also bring a number of other benefits to their surroundings.
The living plants cleanse the air you breathe, dampen sounds, and humidify the environment in which they live. They come in the form of room dividers, modular units and custom installations and can range from modest residential scale to several stories tall.
The unique plant features can be purchased outright, or they can be rented and the company will provide maintenance and care of the support structures and the plants.
In addition to the living, breathing plants, some of the green walls also feature lighting elements to highlight the natural beauty of the greenery.
Imagine how amazing it would be to walk in to work from a rough commute to be suddenly surrounded by plants…or to come home after a long day to be greeted by your own personal indoor garden.
“At Greenworks, we strive to create something more than a green wall when we design and build our vertical gardens. By investing time in planning and design, we are able to create lush vertical gardens with great variation in hue, texture, depth and richness, while at the same time keeping maintenance needs at a minimum. Thanks to our expertise, our vertical gardens develop over time, transforming and creating their own biotope. Our tailor-made systems are air purifying, oxygenating, acoustically absorbing, architecturally challenging and all together contribute to a great environment for our human health. In addition, we can also offer freely growing fruits, berries and herbs on request.”
“Greenworks is founded on an ambition to create more greenery in urban space, both inside and out and to promote the well-being of the person as well as the building. With vibrant and diverse living landscapes shaped by our green walls and green furniture, we enrich all types of environments with better air quality, improved acoustics, softer lighting and not least a different architectural design. For each project, we adapt and tailor the visual, botanical and technical aspects, together with our clients.”
