The Times’ property correspondent, Jessie Hewitson, writes about living walls - the design choice of the ‘bricks are bland’ crowd.
Westgate House, the final phase of Barratt London’s hugely successful 900-home development Great West Quarter, will feature a 27-metre green wall in the foyer on completion this summer. It is set to be the largest internal green wall in Europe and has captured the attention of the Times’ property correspondent this week. Jessie Hewitson’s feature discusses how “once a novelty, green walls are now proliferate in shops, hotels and homes”.
Unique to Westgate House, this indoor vertical garden is housed in a modern glass atrium. Growing over nine storeys and made up of carefully selected plants that can grow indoors, the green wall has been designed as a place for residents’ to meet and relax, while also working as a noise barrier to the M4 and will contribute to cleaning the air entering the apartments.
Westgate House is made up of 83 one and two-bedroom apartments, with the upper floors providing panoramic views over the city and surrounding countryside.
