Applied Imaging installed a 198-square-foot LiveWall® Living Wall as the main design element in the lobby of its new corporate headquarters at 5555 Glenwood Hills Parkway Southeast in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The 198-square-foot living wall is 9 feet tall and 22 feet long. In total, it includes 98 LiveWall large planters, which contain inserts that hold the growing medium and a mix of six different tropical plants, chosen for their ability to thrive indoors. Selections include striped dracaena (Dracaena warneckii ‘Green Stripe’ and Dracaena fragrans ‘Lemon Lime‘), Swiss cheese plant (Monstera deliciosa), fiddle-leaf fig (Ficus lyrata), burgundy rubber plant (Ficus elastica ‘Burgundy’), and tree philodendron (Philodendron selloum).
The plants are interspersed with colorful signs displaying the elements for success (for example, “Kn” for knowledge, “In” for integrity, “Hm” for humility).
