Project Details

Urban Outfitters, London

This wall was installed at the Regent Street store, Anthropologie. A big name in the USA, with stores in nearly every city, this was Anthropologie's first and flagship European store and so required something special. Biotecture designed a 160m2 indoor living wall, which fills the full height of the retail space; at 15 metres high, it creates a dramatic backdrop to the retail brand’s eclectic and creative mode of presentation.

The design for this impressive indoor living wall is based on a fluid interpretation of woven cloth. It features many plant species which are known to have beneficial effects on improving air quality, including Spatyphillum  'Peace Lily', which is the number one for air quality improvement according to NASA, and Chlorophytum  'Spider Plant'.

 Anthropologie’s new store does not disappoint. We were particularly taken by the 'living wall', a verdant spectacle climbing down the main wall.
