How it works

Vierschichtenmodell

1 The vegetation ...
... is sown on the facade and thrives on the ceramic layer. It only requires a little water and almost no maintenance. Many kinds of plants can be used.


2 The ceramic layer ...
... is the visible part of the facade. This stylish, aesthetically-pleasing material is porous which allows roots to penetrate and the substrate to breathe.


3 The substrate ...
... is the culture medium for the plants, enabling them to grow. It bonds the (organic) vegetation with the mineral layer and has been formulated for optimal plant growth.


4 The concrete ...
... is what actually supports the facade system. Fibre-reinforced ultra-high performance concrete ensures minimal thickness and weight.
