Incorporating a combination of Jakob’s high-quality stainless-steel ropes, rods and planters, MMA delivered an elegant green (living) wall at the iconic One Hyde Park building – home to the most expensive apartment in Britain.
Our green wall has been installed to the eastern edge of the One Hyde Park building; where it lines the route of a new pedestrian walkway (Serpentine Walk), just a few steps away from Harrods. The wall creates a stunning green corridor between Hyde Park and the nearby Harrods store and 80 luxury apartments.
The green wall provides both a visual and physical link between the expansive open spaces of Hyde Park and the busy street scene along Knightsbridge. The greening is also a taster of the views from the opulent penthouse suites above.
Urban greening is a core element of healthy streets. The designers of the project, led by architect Richard Rogers of Rogers Stirk Habour, chose the Jakob Green Wall system due to its aesthetic appeal suiting the architectural design of the building and the 21st century trend of city greening.
Alongside the LED lighting, the green wall makes the building unique and distinctive. Ensuring that it looks great, both day and night.
Installed by Willerby Landscapes, the finish was both architectural and functional. This modern system delivers so much more than just good looks; by providing both environmental and economic benefits such as trapping dust and pollutants, absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.
