Artificial Green Walls Tokyo
VistaFolia® is proud to be partnered with Chiba-based GreenField Inc, a leading Japanese distributor of premium construction and landscaping solutions. Launched in 1997, GreenField Inc specializes in providing high quality landscaping products to Japanese and Taiwanese markets including popular DuPont products Xavan; a chemical-free polypropylene weed control solution and, construction and landscaping foundation stabilizer, Ground Grid.
Green Field Inc’s management instantly formed a deep respect for Vistafolia® founder Paul Alder’s passion and knowledge for plants – a respect which was very much mutual. During the first meeting, it was immediately apparent that the two companies share a philosophy and vision for re-imagining the way in which nature and the built environment can work side by side. Due to relatively small living spaces, the Japanese culture places great importance on nature and, GreenField Inc were instantly drawn to Vistafolia’s natural and beautiful vibrant green walls and lush foliage and, were delighted by the simple and straightforward installation techniques. From that first meeting, it was clear that a partnership between GreenField Inc and Vistafolia® would form a team of unparalleled talent, experience and vision.
Named after the God of Good Fortune, Ebisu is a vibrant and trendy area of Tokyo and is home to the city’s most popular shopping, culture and leisure center, Yebisu Garden Place. A stunning piece of architecture with a distinctive glass and metal arch, the center contains a number of bars and restaurants as well as high end stores and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.
Vistafolia® and Green Field Inc were tasked with softening the exterior of Ebisu Hills, a three-story complex of condominiums in Shibuya. Although luxurious, it was felt that the exterior of the exclusive apartment block was a little cold and uninviting. The entrance to the building is accessed by a path, along which an imposing wall featuring the name of the complex and distinctive metal panels is dominant – and it was this wall which the team felt was the perfect place for a little Vistafolia® magic. Treating the wall as a blank canvas, the team designed a top to bottom carpet of perfect lush greenery, leaving room for the complex’s name plate. Not only does the wall look great from the outside but, it also provides residents with an improved view from many of the apartments.
With increasingly busy lives, more and more business and residential customers are opting for artificial turf and decorative artificial green wall in order to add warmth to a building. In the case of Ebisu Hills, the addition of the Vistafolia® wall has transformed the exterior into a much more welcoming and attractive view.
