Our Jakob Green Wall Living The ‘High Life’ At One Hyde Park
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.
MMA Architectural - Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Liverpool
As part of a £237 million development of Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool, MMA Architectural Systems Ltd installed 2,500m² of Jakob Webnet stainless steel mesh system.
As sole UK agents for the Jakob stainless steel ropes, rods and mesh systems, MMA supplied and installed the Webnet material to cover all the openings in the hospital’s purpose-built, multi-storey car park. The work was undertaken for Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, with MMA working directly for main contractor Laing O’Rourke.
Commenting on the programme, MMA Director, Nikki Errington, said: “We are delighted to have been involved in this project, with our high-strength Webnet system fulfilling a vital safety role – providing effective fall-protection and suicide-prevention for the 1,200 space, multi-storey car park. At the same time though, the unobtrusive Webnet structure allows natural light to flood into the car park and air to flow through it, providing an open and airy environment.”
Proven in major car-park applications across Europe, Webnet is a long-life, low maintenance system which provides a robust and elegant solution for a wide range of projects from car parks such as this one to green walls, balustrade infill and animal enclosures.
Webnet helps architects and designers create safe and secure car parks without having to compromise on aesthetic, performance or durability. With low maintenance requirements, Webnet enables car parks to be fully enclosed to meet safety and security requirements whilst allowing air and light into the structure, natural ventilation being vital for the extraction of exhaust fumes.
