Hillhouse Grand Opening-020

Habitat Horticulture has been collaborating with Hillhouse Construction Company to create a dynamic workspace at the newest Zero Net Energy – Zero Carbon Emissions (ZNE) building in Sunnyvale, CA. Annually, the amount of energy used by ZNE buildings equates to the amount of renewable energy generated at the site, creating an ultra efficient workplace.

The 600 square foot, 2-story wall contains over 4,000 plants, many of which were chosen for their ability to purify the air by removing pollutants from indoor environments. Plants such as Neon pothos and Philodendron brazil are effective at removing common indoor toxins including formaldehyde, xylene, toluene, benzene, and carbon monoxide.

Images of the wall were taken at the opening event.
