A Verticalis Air green wall seven metres wide and over two metres tall, with automatic irrigation, greets visitors in the parking floor of the shopping centre, which was reopened in 2018.
The Verticalis Air is designed for extra moisture. The support medium is a textile made of PET, which absorbs the moisture like a sponge. A lot of water is evaporated by the permanent water circulation, creating a pleasant climate in the room. The Verticalis Air is also largely inorganic, and thus very clean.
Warm colours dominate a ground floor that is bathed in light. The seating places and the black olive trees, standing at over 3.5 metres in their “Osaka by Michel Bruggmann” Eternit plant pots, create a relaxed atmosphere for shopping.
Beat Widmer is all ears.
