Thanks for coming down over the weekend to install our gardens. We’re stoked with the result and both walls are going to be real features of the building
IVHQ Executive Director Dan Radcliffe says the inclusion of the interior green walls in the fit-out lines up with the company’s need to maintain a connection with nature and the environment. “The Hanging Gardens are an awesome feature of our fit-out and we’ve been able to create an office space that will make our energetic team feel good about coming to work,” says Dan. “We chose the green walls as a feature because of their calming effect on people and the improvement in air quality we can achieve. That plus our use of solar power in the building are central to the concept of having green, sustainable office premises.”
“We were excited to bring Hanging Gardens in to design and install the two green walls. Specialists in this area, they were wonderful to work with and their passion and expertise in vertical gardens shines through in the finished office space.
Thanks to you and your team, we just love our Hanging Garden and the locals love it too!
The capturing of the rainwater off the roof is brilliant and somehow the whole place feels much cooler. Everyone wants to know the names of the native plants – can you give me a poster with the names please?
I also love the plants in the room it made such an impression on me that I thought I had better clean my room up to make the plants feel better !
My staff are jealous of the gardens in my office, so could you add some more in their offices too please?
Palmerston North Airport Limited Chief Executive David Lanham said
“The ongoing program of terminal enhancements continued at Palmerston North Airport this week with the installation of two three metre high hanging gardens within the terminal.
Its fantastic to finally see Hanging Garden’s design come to life in our terminal. Hanging Gardens is the only company in New Zealand that has a long history of successfully delivering sustainable soil based vertical gardens.
Hanging Garden’s unique living wall system features automatic irrigation with individual plants growing in removable felt pockets. The installation at Palmerston North Airport features over 300 individual plants.”
“The hanging gardens represent the next stage in our interpretation of the Legend of Hau, a story which has been adopted by the airport company after consultation with Rangitane, and which symbolises our airport’s place within the wider region.”
“They look great! “
