DESIGN & INSTALL – Fytogreen Australia

COMPLETION – February 2014

Rising 18 levels next to Southern Cross train station this building is the first of its type in Victoria. Covered with green facades, green roofs and vertical gardens. The Medibank building will set a new benchmark on building green.  Fytogreen was contracted to provide research, develop the design and construct the green facades, green roofs and vertical gardens.

The green facades are made up of 520 planter boxes each pre built and pre grown at Fytogreen’s facility in Somerville then transported and craned into position from level 1 up to level 16. Each planter box has the dimensions of 600mm high x 600mm wide x 600mm deep. The bottom 1/3 of the climbing frame was attached to the planter box during pre growing and that then was attached to the rest of the climbing frame when the planter box was positioned on the building.

6 species of climbing vines were selected from our research plots, which include Trachelospernum jasminoides, Pandorea pandorana, Pandorea jasminoides, Muehlenbeckia adpressa, Muelenbeckia complexa and Hibbertia scandens. These were planted and pre grown for 3-6 months prior to installation.

The green facades will adorn 3 aspects of the Medibank Building and will need to survive challenging and wide range of conditions from level 1 up to level 16.

COMPLETION – October 2015

During the refurbishment of Stonnington Council Offices, Fytogreen installed a combination of 3 Fytowall breathing vertical gardens and a green façade in the internal atrium.

The effects of these stunning greenwalls / facades, that cover both sides of the 3 level atrium wall, provides a fresh al fresco feel to the building whilst providing additional benefit for the health and wellbeing of all employees.

A living, breathing green wall in an Atrium space, reduces CO2 and VOC levels while enriching the O2 levels; both the vertical garden and green facade act as an indoor air purifier, providing improved air quality for all the buildings occupants.
