Living walls or vertical green for a green facade
The LivePanel Outdoor system from Mobilane was used for the green facade at Garagepark Bergen op Zoom. The LivePanel Outdoor system transforms bare and gray facades into a blooming wall. Living walls or vertical greenery with real plants have increased enormously in popularity in recent years and contribute to the greening of urban areas, increasing biodiversity, heat regulation and climate resilience. A green facade creates a unique appearance and it is also one of the most recent trends in facade cladding. It gives a unique view when you have plants on the facade since you fix something vertically that is normally fixed horizontally. Mobilane is a specialist in green facades for the outside and green walls for the inside
