As people spend more time indoors and away from nature, more buildings such as offices, hospitals and public spaces are starting to include living walls in their structures. This inclusion of living walls is part of the larger movement for more biophilic designs.
“Right now, I think it’s more prevalent than ever,” says Nathan Beckner, horticulturist and lead plant designer at Sagegreenlife, based in Chicago, Illinois. “The awareness has skyrocketed and now it’s more of an expectation whether it’s an office space, a high-end hotel or a restaurant. People buying condos even; they expect this biophilic design, whether it be a living wall or elaborate interiorscaping. People are really gravitating towards that and are aware of the benefits. It’s more popular than ever now.”
Sagegreenlife is a living wall company based in Chicago that encompasses a multitude of green design functions. Sage Living Media incorporates digital media into living walls to create a unique, highly effective digital marketing experience. Living walls, both indoor and outdoor, help their commercial and residential clients connect and engage with nature in a unique and interesting way.
