The University of Greenwich Green Roofs and Living Wall Research Centre has installed a NEMEC Living Wall on the first floor of the building in which landscape architects and architects are taught.
The Stockwell Street building has extensive and intensive green roofs which can be seen from many points within the building. But there was no internal vegetation. The studio and circulation spaces are now greatly enriched by the living wall. It freshens the air and provides a dazzling splash of colour to set off the whites, greys and blacks of the building interiors. It is most welcome.
Landscape architects Benz Kotzen, Shelley Mosco and Sarah Milliken, who staff the University of Greenwich Green Roofs and Living Wall Centre, planned, designed and planted the living wall and are now researching its visual, human and environmental impact.
