This year marks an exciting advancement in the evolution of living plants walls. ‘Breathing’ (or ‘active’) living walls are an enhancement of the previous generation of ‘passive’ walls. What is the difference?

An active wall uses a powerful (yet acoustically quiet) air pump system to draw in dirty air (indoors or outdoors) and then uses the bacteria encased around the root system of the plants to clean that dirty air of particulate and toxins. This process is a naturally occurring phenomenon called ‘rhizo-filtration’. It is exactly how plants and trees interact with the soil in everything from permaculture to rain forests. In ‘active’ walls – even small volumes of soil / substrate – one plant is able to clean thousands of litres of air per day.

Living walls are no longer a novelty. They are an established genre – so the game has changed. Sensescape is able to offer ‘designed living art’ as a means of combining beauty with the practicality of this naturally occurring phenomenon.

Air pollution is now an issue world wide and in many cities – an increasing cause of absenteeism from work, poor performance in the workplace, increased care costs of respiratory conditions (hospital admissions double during bad air days – source University of London – January 2017).

Sensescape is happy to open up a conversation about the problems you may be facing in your environment – residential or commercial.
