Sansiri Vertical Living Gallery is an Alluring Bangkok Office Wrapped in Green

The designers chose a single plant to populate their vertical garden. Given that the temperatures in the city can become quite suffocating during the summer months , it was necessary to choose a plant that would easily adapt. The Tokyo Dwarf is a ground plant that is remarkably hardy and requires very little maintenance.
In addition to being a simple, attractive addition to the building’s otherwise glass facade, the green cut outs act as a minor carbon sink. In this densely populated city where poorly maintained cars and tuk tuks and trucks create a sooty atmosphere, Bangkok can benefit from any additional greenery. We hope this project by Sansiri will spread a greater vertical garden phenomenon!
