Elephant & Castle

Elephant & Castle STATION LIVING WALL

Completed in 2016, Transport for London commissioned us to design, grow and install this large Living Wall in an effort to counter air pollution in London. The location, the busy Elephant & Castle roundabout junction, was one of the areas identified as needing urgent air quality improvement. The Living Wall complements the existing historic architecture of the building while covering an exposed facade.

The overlapping circular design was chosen as it represented the significance of one of London’s busiest roundabout junctions. Plants were specifically chosen as they are better air filters of PM10 – harmful particulates from traffic fumes.
