Walkie Talkie Building LIVING WALL
We were commissioned by Willerby Landscapes to design and install this living wall for Land Securities at 20 Fenchurch Street. At over 700m2 the 20 Fenchurch Street living wall contains around 52,000 plants. The wall was installed on an annex service building opposite the southern entrance. Its aim was to create an environment surrounding the area that was both pleasant and impressive. It also contributes to their sustainability goals, helping the building to achieve a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.
A mix of ferns, shrubs and grasses create a variety of colours and textures in this living wall. Flowering plants give fragrant bursts of violet, pink and white to the wall throughout the summer, after which berries ripen in the winter.
