Medibank are the primary tenant for the new 720 Bourke Street development in Melbourne, Docklands.
Medibank’s senior manager asked for a building with significant foliage adorning the facades of the building.
The Architect, Hassell, developed the concept of 2 x 200m2 vertical gardens flanking the 720 Bourke Street entrance on the south east of the building.
Fytogreen’s botanist used 72 species and 11,600 plants to create this design. Fytogreen pre-grew this vertical garden in 5 months in shade houses prior to installation.
This south east facing wall only gets a small amount of early morning sun and the rest of the day it’s in shade.
Fytogreen also provided 520 pre-grown green facade planters and 16 roof gardens, spread over 16 levels.
