An innovative Green Wall, developed by the Jakob design team

Webnet Greening, Pfäffikon, Switzerland

An innovative Green Wall, developed by the Jakob design team, is now providing shade and year-round temperature control for this contemporary office building.

Hanging Green wall is used to shade glass building helping to control the temperature

The innovative design features our Webnet stainless steel mesh system suspended from roof supports to create a strong, secure and long-life structure for plants to climb up. Planters at first floor level encircle the building to provide low level greening, as well as a base for the climbers.

Bringing nature to this urban landscape, the green wall not only makes the office look spectacular, but also provides a habitat for wildlife and significantly improves the building’s carbon footprint. The shade and evaporative cooling of the plants also help to cool the building in summer and insulate it in winter, helping to improve thermal efficiency and save energy costs.
