BIOPHILIC VIEWS FROM
A OVER MILE AWAY

T

he GardenHouse is the first completed project in the US by worldrenowned architect Ma Yansong.
This modern architectural masterpiece
is located in Beverly Hills California
within the city center. GardenHouse
pays homage to the rich history of
Beverly Hills and the iconic mansions
of the past. The design of GardenHouse
has taken much inspiration from these
stately figures, peeking out from behind
the manicured green hedges luxurious
living. The modern interpretation are
these clean line white houses atop floating green rolling hills, which is now the
quilted mosaic of a vertical garden. This
modern mixed use architectural building
covered by the largest living wall in the
United States at 6,700 square feet, with
28 species and over 40,000 plants.
The AquaFelt system is comprised
of 2 layers of felt, which takes the place
of soil over time. The plants roots
grow throughout the entire expanse
of the wall creating their own vertical
ecosystem, which mimics cliffs in nature.
This is a form of biophilia that is the
key to success of this green wall system.
The planted green fa├žade consumes the
entire length of the building, encasing
windows, balconies and curving at the
intersection of 2 major cross streets. The
system is hydroponic and recirculates
from a large holding tank at the bottom
basement floor, pumping water up to
the top of the wall and wicked down
throughout the felt layers.
Judges praised the project for its
scope, scale, and broader benefits to the
community in which is was constructed.
