Brigade Group has unveiled a large biowall at its ‘Opus’ project, a LEED Gold pre-certified Grade-A commercial office space in Hebbal. Located on the International Airport Road, “Brigade Opus’s recently completed project of huge height and scale is all set to take over the conventional glass facades of Bengaluru,” says Jaishankar, CMD, Brigade Group, the brainchild of the green wall.
A green wall is a vegetation growing on or against a vertical surface. Measuring 16 m height and 25 m in width, the 400 sq. m large biowall houses different species of plants such as Foxtail Fern, Moses-in-the-cradle, Lilyturf , Mondo grass, Pandan screw pine, and Money plant, with a total of 15,750 plants. “The biowall wasn’t created just for aesthetics. Apart from its visual appeal it will have direct positive impact on the tenants by keeping the interiors of the building cool and improving the air quality around it. The living wall can be automated and monitored with natural air purification and humidification. It also functions from the project’s own natural air filtration system,” explains Mr. Jaishankar.
