Meet Hanna – and welcome to her wall. Not her wall, technically – it belongs to a commercial client in Manhattan. It graces the interior of their SoHo neighborhood offices. But Hanna is a senior designer with Town & Gardens, Ltd., and this is her baby. She’s justifiably proud of her work. More images after the jump…
Hanna and her boss Don sent over a few of these images to show us the progress on the installation. The client hasn’t quite moved into the space yet, but the architects (who just dropped by last week) were overwhelmed by the outcome. Once the client moves in and the entire space is finished we’ve been promised more images – we can’t wait to see their “beauty shots”! The wall measures more than 26-feet tall and 900 sq. ft., and is one of the largest (certainly the tallest) TerraScreen installations yet.
Town& Gardens did most of the heavy lifting on this highly complicated project. They did the planning and detailing of how the TerraScreen would fit around the interior of the irregular space. Not only does the wall angle, but there are also two windows that they had to plan around. Once T&G figured out what would work, Tournesol trimmed the panels to slightly smaller sizes. They used panels in both portrait as well as landscape format. Town & Garden does extensive interior and exterior work in the NYC Metro area, so they enlisted their irrigation department to plan and run the automatic irrigation system. According to their team, this was one of the most complicated parts of the job.
In order to do the installation on a tall wall like this, they modified a ladder (seen in the images above & below), so that it could be set in place without crushing the TerraScreen frame.

We’ll be sure to post more images, and a full story from Hanna when the job is finally complete!
