Babylone provides vegetation and light for well-being

Babylone provides vegetation and light for well-being

At the Babor Treatment Lounge on Humlegårdsgatan at Stureplan in the middle of Stockholm, the floating plant satellites are an obvious feature of all the available skin therapies. The dimly lit Babylone plant lamps is received by both customers and staff as calming. We know how different types of light intensity and colour temperatures affect our hormone production. However, the research on the emotional impact of light which is called Human Centric Lighting, is still in its early days. In the morning and evening, our daily rhythm is affected by low light intensity and colour temperature, we become more alert in the middle of the day when levels are significantly stronger. Until electric light became a matter of course, our working hours were controlled almost entirely by natural light. On the other hand, the fact that the electric light allows night work has been shown to affect people’s daily rhythm and sleep more than we thought.

Time for pruning and planting at Stockholm City´s first vertical garden

Time for pruning and planting at Stockholm City´s first vertical garden

The lush living wall that adorns the facade at the corner of Drottninggatan / Mäster Samuelsgatan just next to Sergels Torg gives life to a dull urban environment in the midst of Stockholm. Three years after the inauguration, the vertical garden serves as a portal to Drottninggatan, Sweden’s most visited commercial street. When Greenworks, by the property owner Vasakronan and the architects at Nyréns, was commissioned to erect the 70 square meter green lush façade lot, with 2,500 plants of some forty varieties, it was fully in line with Stockholm City’s goal to strengthen the green structure and biodiversity.

”This time the maintenance procedure is a little faster, we can do it in 6 hours,” says Jens Öqvist, landscape engineer at Greenworks who equipped with secateurs, staple gun, scissors, headlamp and protective harness slides up almost 30 meters to be able to prune and remove old flowers and plants.

Living shop environment with plants on the wall

Greenworks supplies H&M on Gustav Adolf’s square in the middle of Malmö with greenery. Nature moves inside at Sweden’s third largest city, and Hennes & Mauritz gets a unique indoor environment that distinguishes it from all other clothing stores.

– The idea was to create a living wall that is more than just a green wall, Jens Öqvist explains, landscape engineer at Greenworks. The intention was to create a vertical garden with a three-dimensional depth that captures contrasts and soft shapes.

The living wall serves as a backscene of the two escalators that link the floors together and becomes an eyecatcher in a world of clothes. At 60 square meters there are 18 different plant species. Jens, who also has an background in industrial economics, points to a number of parameters in addition to the more artistic and aesthetic aspects.

Scandinavia's largest living wall project is given added value

Twenty-eight living walls, contributed to the fact that Biomedicum managed to win the ‘Building of the Year’ Award this spring. Greenworks' living walls, that spread over nine floors, has added to C.F. Møller's architectural idea of ​’​Park in House’, transforming the sterile lab environments into lush vertical gardens. When scientists and students meet at the coffee stations the living walls brings a soothing feeling and is often the subject of conversation while they contribute with cleaner air and better acoustics. Perhaps there is a possibility to add some edible plants and herbs as well?

- They are beautiful, but also give significantly better air, Dagmar Galter at the Department of Neuroscience explains. We usually take pictures here when someone has nailed their thesis!

- The variety of lush plants and the fact that the foliage is hanging out and spreading is lovely, my colleague Katrin Wellfelt says, the wilder the better, it should not be too strict. Imagine if it had been artificial flowers, it would not have given the same feeling at all.

Lush vertical garden

Lush vertical garden

at Telenor's Stockholm head office

When Telenor Sweden moved into their new headquarters, they implemented an activity-based approach. The goal is to increase the interaction between the employees, and to encourage to more spontaneous meetings, enhancing  creativity and efficiency. Norwegian interior-architects, ‘ Romlaboratoriet’ have designed the space with a focus on openness and use of the buildings great natural light and views.
In this project Greenworks had a few aspects to consider, 2 large led-screens, and a wall-mounted leather sofa beneath. We wanted to create a green and lush plantscape with a minimum of maintenance. We, as well as the client, are very satisfied with the result.
