GREEN LUNGS + vertical indoor landscape
EA were asked to resolve this gateway project in West London’s big building area. The atrium of this landmark building was a highly visible and comprehensive sun path analysis, temperature, noise and humidity analysis enabled a concept of a ‘Green Lantern’ to be created with trailing plants and forest species inside and across 4 floors. Plants were carefully selected from sub-tropical and temperate regions. Trees were planned to extend through the slab to give a feeling of walking in the canopy. This gave a definitive green feel from both inside and outside of the building, particularly considering significant views from the A4.
