In a land-scarce country like Singapore, developers & designers are perhaps most concerned about how they can maximise the limited space given. And as we diligently adhere to social distancing measures, the need for space becomes even more evident. This makes green walls a great alternative as compared to traditional landscaping. Take a look at how some of our commercial & residential clients have utilised vertical greenery due to space constraints.

Located in Pasir Panjang, this condominium features several green walls on the facade of its buildings and around its rooftop garden. As the units extend to the rooftop, this meant that there is a limited space to balance between amenity use and landscaping. Yet, having sufficient greenery is essential to mitigate the heat of the sun’s exposure on the roof. That is why multiple green walls can be found around the rooftop garden.
McDonald’s @ Vista Point
This McDonald’s outlet extends it’s seating area to a semi-alfresco setting. The 10m long green wall acts as a screen from the general traffic and creates a unique dining experience for their users. With budget constraints, the irrigation system was specially customised to fit their budget requirements.
OCBC Frank @ NUS
Retail space are often small and it can be quite challenging to set the desired mood and look to the space. This branch @ National University of Singapore was designed for students to utilise this space to study or relax. Plants is a must for a relaxing environment! The green wall also helps to add a pop of colour which makes the place a vibrant environment for students to hang out at.
HDB @ Tiong Bahru
For homeowner, Nabil, he loves plants! But there is a limit to the number of plants he can introduce to his house if they were in pots. That’s when he decided to bring in vertical greenery. With no drainage point at the desired spot for the green wall, a water storage tank is used to take care of the watering & drainage. He does not have to worry about over or under watering the plants as the irrigations are all automated. The water in the tank is kept running to prevent mosquito breeding. Nabil also finds the sound from the running water calming.
