Innovative living green wall company sweeps with first, second, and third place

Delray Beach, FL. (June 5, 2019)GSky Plant Systems, Inc., a global industry leader in the design and production of interior and exterior green walls, announces that its interior Versa Wall® living green wall for San Francisco’s McGuire Building is the Grand Award Winner, Green Walls, for I-Plants / Urban Horticulture Magazine’s International Design Contest.

GSky’s award-winning Versa Wall® design for the McGuire Building in San Francisco, California, marks the first living green wall of its kind to include three free-hanging columns. Completely suspended with no physical connection to the ground, the columns enliven a two-floor atrium space with a variety of colorful tropical plants. The three columns feature GSky’s innovative Versa Wall® gravity-based irrigation technology for higher water efficiency. The columns can be redesigned at minimal cost to add seasonal color since each Versa Wall® plant remains in its own four-inch pot so full-grown plants can be swapped in quickly and cleanly. The design also integrates an array of LED lights for exquisite lighting at night.

Living green walls designed and installed by GSky® also won the International Design Contest’s Silver and Bronze Awards. The Versa Wall® for the Van Dyk Recycling Solutions Corporate Office in Norwalk, Connecticut earned the Silver Award for its two-story flowing design which creates sweeping wave-like shapes with plants of different shades. Installed in the company’s centrally located Café area between offices, the wall cleans the air and reduces noise pollution. Like all Versa Wall® systems, it is protected by GSky’s comprehensive maintenance program with hardware coverage and plant guarantee.

GSky’s Pro Wall® for the Transwestern office campus in Los Angeles, California, brightens the side of a four-story parking structure with 4,000 ft2 of living foliage. Winning the contest’s Bronze Award, the five-wall installation incorporates an undulating design with curves flowing from one wall to the next. Exterior lighting highlights the lustrous exterior Pro Wall® even after nightfall.
