The first vertical garden built in Thessaloniki, Greece is located at the I-Bank store of the National Bank of Greece in the city center. This electronic banking facility offers self-service e-banking as well as space for relaxation and entertainment, and the vertical garden perfectly fits the modern architectural design and the high-tech surroundings. The vertical garden was installed by Vita Verde in August 2011, and after a year it still impresses visitors from all over the world. The plants in the living wall purify the interior air, minimize stress, and increase productivity of the employees. Clients enjoy relaxing while having a break in the coffee corner where the garden is situated, and the overall aesthetics of the space has been improved in a unique way.
