Wetland plants provide important ecosystem services

Looking at beautiful green facades on walls throughout Dutch cities like Amsterdam and Rotterdam, we got the idea to design a wall that is not just pretty, but also provides services to the building’s users and the larger urban environment.

The Idea

Wastewater, like water flowing from toilets or sinks after use, streams through a system of planters with multiple layers of lightweight substrates. The ‘rhizospheric environment, combining the filtration characteristics of the roots, sediments and microbial community filters the wastewater.

A tool for climate adaptation

Reintroducing native wetland species to the urban environment can have many environmental benefits, like helping local biodiversity, taking up carbon dioxide, battling the urban heat island effect and filtering water in a natural way.

Creating a healthy living environment

Putting a swamp on your wall can have many benefits to your house, apartment building or neighborhood. Our vertical swamp can reduce noise pollution, help with thermal insulation and introduce beautiful wetland plants.
