We’re looking forward to the summit, which kicks off next week. It is an entire month of keynote speakers, panel discussions, and research papers on one of our favorite topics – living architecture! Think of it as a trade show, but without actually having to go anywhere to attend. Continue reading
Town & Gardens of New York, following up on the spectacular living wall they installed at the Technogym showroom in SoHo, put in this fantastic interior living wall in the lobby of an apartment cooperative in Brooklyn. They used our TerraScreen interior living wall system, just like in the other installation. Continue reading
We published a post a few months ago regarding the interior living wall that was installed at the Swedish Medical Center in Cherry Hill, WA. While an impressive project on its own, it was only a portion of a larger installation. Designed by Callison Architecture and installed by The Interior Foliage Company, this outdoor garden is immediately outside of the elevator lobby that holds the living wall. We’re especially proud of this project, as it shows how Tournesol Siteworks products can provide a wide range of products for a patio garden. Our design customization was critical to the success of the job. Continue reading
Our friends at Plant Solutions in Scottsdale just shared a fantastic slide show with us of their most recent installation of an interior living wall at the Del Friscos Grille in Phoenix. They’ve done great work in the past with our living walls (see here, here, and here), so we were anxious to share this with you.
Our sales manager John Denman recently was able to visit a new installation of the TerraScreen interior greenwall at the MS Center at Swedish Medical Center Cherry Hill Campus, the site of the very first hospital in Seattle in 1877.
Jeff Basset of Unisource Global Solutions, in Chandler, AZ, recently worked with our regional sales representative Jon Willingham to design an interior living wall for their offices. They enlisted the help of Joe Zazzera and his team from Plant Solutions in Scottsdale to install and maintain the wall.
We frequently have people ask us whether it is complicated to install a TerraScreen system. This series of pictures answers that question better than anything…
We recently received several installation shots from our friends at Instant Jungle in Santa Ana. They worked with Kevin Evernham at Fitch, a leading retail architect in Scottsdale, AZ and Burke Construction on the showroom for Fixtures Living in Costa Mesa, CA. The people at Fitch describe the showroom best:
At Tournesol Siteworks, our goal is to manufacture products that allow designers to express their creativity. Landscape architect Dane Spencer took advantage of that and came up with a completely out-of-the-box application for our TerraScreen product at his own office in Sarasota, FL. Continue reading
The TerraScreen continues to make its way around the world! You can find one at our partner’s office in Dubai, and most recently I received a picture from Rudy Ursem at Green Design in Sydney. They wanted to try out the system, and have been working with our partner A-Z Irrigation in Australia. They put their first one up in their conference room to see how it works. Rudy didn’t think there was anything special about it – we beg to differ!
They are currently looking at using them without irrigation in several applications. They like the sub-irrigation component, and think that they can make it work with their current 4-week maintenance rotations.
We often say that we provide the tools, and our customers use them the way that suits them best. This turned out to be exactly the case for Joan Lynch of The Inner Garden of Pittsford, VT. She wondered why she needed a water machine to connect to the irrigation system of a TerraScreen Interior Greenwall. She suggested to Jeff Crean of our distributor Bisco that a pump sprayer would work just as well. While we hadn’t considered it, we couldn’t think of a reason why it wouldn’t work.
