Living walls are fast becoming a large part of our repertoire and we are really relishing the challenges of creating and maintaining walls dense with a wide range of colours and foliage to suit the setting and client and creating impact and healthy greenery on interior walls.
So we are really excited about the new living wall we have just helped to install for West Elm, the global home furnishings retailer, who have opened their first European store in London in early December. As it will be the company’s flagship European store, they wanted a large and complex living wall, fitting for this prestigious new site.
The wall was constructed using a system which was new to us, but one which we liked very much and hope to use again in the future.
The GSky Versa Wall System, which is making its first UK appearance at this West Elm store, is, we think, a system which brings together all of the best elements of other living wall systems, with the potential to be very affordable once it is established in the UK.
GSky are based in Vancouver and have been designing and installing living walls for West Elm throughout its global expansion, which seems to be going at a healthy rate.
