Our greenery expertise was enlisted by Erilyan Commercial Construction to create a green feature wall for the brand new Wollongong Private Hospital. The client specified greenery because of the numerous science-backed claims that nature is most effective at heightening patients spirits and in some cases, speeding up the healing process. It was requested that we design our greenery to appear as if it were growing out of the wave design timber and to achieve this, we used our Classic Boxwood with the addition of Hanging Angel Vines.
All commercial spaces have safety design guidelines they must adhere to and hospitals have additional ones which can make it difficult to navigate which construction materials can and cannot be used. The use of real greenery runs the compost risk of attracting bugs and unwanted pests and just isn't a feasible option in a hospital environment. For these reasons, it was imperative that Erilyan Constructions find an artificial greenery that could both adhere to building and hospital standards and also be customisable to design specifications. Evergreen Walls specialises in all of the above and so was the ideal candidate!
Classic Boxwood is a traditional hedging bush and so provides great coverage with great custom potential. It is one of our most versatile design products that is great as a blank canvas to design and add upon. The addition of vines and hanging bushes is extremely effective and helps bring depth and volume to any green wall, working exceptionally well with the unique wave design of the existing timber. Our hanging vines give the greenery a real life 'growing out of the wall' look and are a fantastic feature piece for the hospital lobby. We hope our greenery can bring some happiness to the patients, visitors and employees of Wollongong Private Hospital.
Our greenery installation resulted in a beautiful lobby that all patients, visitors and employees will be greeted with upon entering the hospital. Greenery has been scientifically proven in numerous studies to calm people and this is exactly what a hospital should strive for to counteract the unnerving effect hospitals can sometimes have on people. We hope to work with Erilyan Constructions and Wollongong Private Hospital on any future greenery installations they might require.
