Project Description

Data Center Brings Color and Nature to Building with LiveWalls

This data center includes living walls, which serve multiple functions:

  1. The green wall plants help to naturally cool the building during the hot summer months, which helps to reduce the high utility costs associated with keeping the data systems cool.
  2. The living wall planter “stripes” help to break up the otherwise stark and monotonous exterior typical of data centers in a pleasant, organic way.
  3. Staff in adjacent buildings have had their views blocked to the natural surroundings.  The green walls help to restore a connection to nature in a surprising and engaging way.
