“Beautiful, bold and brilliantly green” is the way this next generation sustainable office building is described.This 27-level tower at 1 Bligh Street is Sydney’s first 6-Star Green Star Office Design V2 Certified building ch promises to provide a new benchmark in sustainable design.
Fytogreen created a 377 square meter green wall which calls for shade and wind tolerant plant species specified by the architect to be “uniform green”, with “simplicity rather than celebration” as its theme.The 40 meter long green wall presents its own site challenges due to its solar orientation. A research and development program will support the on-going sustainability of this special project, to nurture and investigate suitable plant species for the on-going maintenance of the green wall.
