Colchester's AgroSci takes on Brooklyn green wall

Colchester — A local firm has installed a 25-foot green wall at the recently opened ecology-themed lodging facility in Brooklyn known as 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge.

AgroSci said in a news release that the living wall's plants are "set against a steel and concrete wall" in the hotel lobby in the so-called Dumbo neighborhood. The wall was designed by Harrison Green, who has a New York City landscape design firm.

“Harrison Green approached AgroSci with a unique concept, and we jointly turned the idea into reality,” said AgroSci CEO Chris Pianta in a statement. “Their design succeeds brilliantly in bringing nature indoors, in line with 1 Hotel’s eco-theme.”

AgroSci also installed a three-story green wall on the façade of 1 Hotel Central Park at 1414 Sixth Ave. in midtown Manhattan and did the façade green walls at 1 Hotel South Beach and a living wall in the property’s ballroom.

AgroSci uses a patented Aerogation air-purifying system to deliver air directly into root systems, helping plants reduce air impurities and break down chemicals.
