When designing the layout of their new Long Beach office, Westland Real Estate of Long Beach, California, wanted to give their employees a comfortable working environment. In order to achieve this goal, they installed a 480 square-foot LiveWall Indoor living wall system.
The green wall was installed to reduce the noise from the busy call-center housed within the office. The large soil volume and healthy plants work together to naturally absorb vibrations and bring the volume down within the office.
The LiveWall Indoor system was selected because it is water-efficient and offers a drip-free solution for office applications. This wall features a variety of indoor tropical plants that will thrive in an office environment.
Research by Alex Haslam of the university of Queensland found that an office enriched with plants makes staff happier and boosts productivity by 15%. See this and other California living walls in our project showcase.
