Find out how a Living Wall from BioWall could benefit your home or business:

 

First Impressions Count

Living Walls transcend the expectations of a feature wall.  They introduce inspiring living elements to a business or home which provides instant wow factor, leaves a lasting impression and has proven wellness attributes.

Green Credentials

Living walls are a perfect way to reinforce your environmentally friendly business ethics and compliment the promotion of sustainable goods & services.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Internal planting reduces CO2 and improves air quality.  This is particularly relevant in modern air-conditioned buildings.  A Living Wall can help address health issues associated with sick building syndrome, whilst externally they encourage biodiversity, reduce noise and help decrease the impact of solar gain.

Health & Wellbeing

Humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature.  This is known as ‘Biophilia’.  Biophilic Design is the application of this principle in the design of the spaces in which we live and work to improve our health and well-being. 

Incorporating natural elements into the built environment has been proven to reduce stress, blood pressure levels and heart rates, whilst increasing productivity, creativity and well-being. 

Lead by Example

Some of the biggest names in business are leading the way and adopting biophilic design into their workspaces. Apple, Google and Amazon are investing heavily in Biophilic Design elements. These principles are shown to not only improve worker concentration, engagement and cognitive ability but also to attract and retain staff in the “war for talent”. 

The 2020 Health & Wellbeing at Work Survey carried out by CIPD found stress to be a main cause of both short term and long term absenteeism from work. Incorporating Biophilic Design can be part of a larger plan to help address this.  Put simply, Living Walls are a no brainer for the brains.

Don’t just take our word for it

There have been numerous studies over the last 35 years on the benefits to the built environment through improving our connection with nature: 

Office Spaces:  Productivity can be increased by 8%, rates of well-being up by 13%, increases in creativity, with reduced absenteeism

Hospitality Spaces:  Guests willing to pay 23% more for rooms with views of Biophilic elements

Education Spaces:  Increased rates of learning 20-25%, improved test results, concentration levels and attendance, reduced impacts of ADHD

Healthcare Spaces:  Post- operative recovery times decreased by 8.5%, reduced pain medication by 22% 

Retail/Shops:  The presence of vegetation & landscaping has been found to

increase average rental rates on retail spaces with customers indicating they were willing to pay 8-12 % more for goods and services.

Homes: can become more calming & restorative, with 7-8 % less crime attributed to areas with access to nature and can command an increase of 4-5% in property price.
