Just as curb appeal leads to higher occupancy rates in commercial buildings, creating a visually appealing and aesthetically pleasing interior space is just as important to attracting top talent.
How do office managers improve the quality of commercial work places? Living walls are a key component to bringing a natural, cool look and feel to office space, and to increasing productivity.
Both inside and outside, green walls and living walls bring people to life. Don’t be surprised if you see an extra spring in the step of your co-workers or people coming out of their cubicles to eat lunch.
Green walls or living walls are self-sufficient vertical walls, partially or completely covered with greenery. As an emerging design trend, green walls don’t need to look alike. They can be unique and customized to meet the needs and limitations of the space, taking on different shapes, looks, feels and textures. And, they are low maintenance because they include automatic irrigation systems.
How can green walls benefit your work environment? Here are six ways to find inspiration in living walls:
- They do a great job of cleaning interior air space by removing pollutants in the air.
- They act as a sound proofing barrier; good for modern shared work spaces.
- They reduce absenteeism in the work place.
- They boost employee morale.
- They increase oxygen.
- They create natural humidity.
