ARCHITECTS – Bates Smart


DESIGN & INSTALL – Fytogreen Australia

COMPLETION – September 2010

One of Fytogreen’s first green facade installation,  a series of indoor / outdoor rooms with green facades used for smoking break out space and restaurant spaces at Crown Casino, Melbourne.  The facade is made up of 18 stands, each being 3 tiers high, located along the street level of the casino on Whiteman Street, Southbank.  Using a laser cut metal climbing frame and metal thin profile planter boxes Fytogreen designed an irrigation and drainage system to fit within the structures uprights. With a profile of only 250mm the green Ivy and Clivia plants are assisted with their growth with metal halide lights located below each tier of the planter-box.

After 3 years, the Ivy had filled out covering much of the climbing frame and the Clivia when in flower matches well the interior decorative lights.
