An artistic approach is one of our main goals. With each project we aim to create a strikingly beautiful, unique and original work of art designed to best complement its surroundings.
When visiting botanical gardens, taking a stroll in a park or hiking through a forest it is easy to see that nature has come up with a huge variety of color, textures, patterns and sizes. By utilizing this diversity and incorporating hundreds of species of plants it is possible to create living art. We like to see plants as our paints and walls as our canvases!
Have you ever been in a large room full of people talking and you feel like you have to yell so the person next to you can hear? Did you fell overwhelmed by the amount of noise and left the room with a ringing in your ears? This is due to the echo created by all of the people's voices or music bouncing off the cellings, floors and other hard objects in the room.
Studies have shown that the leaves of plants attenuate sound by reflecting, refracting and absorbing acoustic energy in small amounts. The amount of noise reduction is proportional to the number of plants that are present in a room. Kamling Vertical Garden contains such a large number of plants that the acoustics of a room can be substantially improved.
Plants are sometimes used in buildings for their acoustical benefit alone. In Germany a green concert hall was constructed which incorporated many plants, the high density resulted in such a good acoustic quality that the German Broadcasting Station relocated to use the room for new casting.
Plants and tree have been used for years as barried against traffic and other urban noise pollution. Vertical Garden built on the exteriors of buildings will do the same. They insulate against noise, vibrations and reduce sound penetration. In addition they help to absorb the echo bouncing off buildings and dampen the noise pollution of modern cities.
Kamling Vertical Garden aims to improve the environment and helping to make the cities we live in more sustainable. Kamling Vertical Garden help buildings become more energy efficient which leads to a decrease in carbon emissions. They also mitigate the urban heat island effect, absorb and filter stormwater, reduce pollution and act as carbon sinks.
In addition to using a wide range of native and locally adapted vegatation on our outdoor walls, beneficial organisms, such as small birds, butterflies, bees and ladybugs are attracted to these green oases. Therefore Kamling Vertical Garden is helping to bring bordiversity back into the city.
Kamling Vertical Garden acts as a kind of protective barrier which shields a building from solar radiation and heat penetration. This reduces the demand on colling systems. In winter, Kamling Vertical Garden provides and additional layer of insulation. Keeping the cold out and warmth in. These features act to reduce the carbon footprint of a building.
Indoor Air Quality
We currently live in world where little is untouched by man. Pollution reaches the farthest corners of the planet. It is almost though to make you want to run inside and hide! However, this may not be the best idea because according to modern scientific research, indoor environments may be as much as ten times more polluted than the outdoor environment. This is known as "Sick Building Syndrome".
The average person spends over 90% of their time indoors. We are constantly being bombarded with indoor air pollution. This includes toxic fumes such as formaldehyde, VOCs, trichloroethylene, carbon monoxide, benezene, toluene, xylene, and countless others.
The good news is that all plants absorb and clean pollutions from the air. Certain tropical species are more efficient than others. Kamling Vertical Garden have hundereds of different plants at our disposal. We always make sure that each of our green wall contain sample numbers of the plants which are best at improving aire quality.
Kamling Vertical Garden are at the cutting edge of design trends. They have been featured in (or on) upper end hotels and restaurants, designer retail stores. chich spas, exlusive clubs, basically any place looking distinction; something that makes them stand out from their compentitors.
Vertical Garden are also great marketing tools that can be used to promote a company's green image. For example. car dealerships have installed green walls right before the release of new hybrid or electric vehicles. This speaks directly to the green consumer.
In addition to being a marketable green feature. Vertical Garden can increase property values of homes and business. Studies have shown that by simple having plants in and around a building or home can increase real estate values by up to 20%/ Vertical Garden is a unique way to add mroe greenery to your 'interiorscape' design or exterior landscaping plan and attract more people interested in purchasing your property.
Futhermore, it has been proven that by having greenery in retail shops, malls, restaurants, cafes, bars and other businesses, the number of partons increase. Studies have also attributed significantly higher occupancy rates at hotels which incorporate gardens and plants compared to those without. Kamling Vertical Garden is a great way to provide the greenery that people want. If they feel less stress, become more relaxed, they will end up staying longer in your establishment. This also means that they will probably spend more!
Naturally everything heats up when exposed to solar radiation. A building is no different. During the summer it leads to an increased demand on colling systems and the energy they require. Studied have shown that the surfac of an exterior green wall is up to 10°C cooler than an exposed wall, therefore considerably less heat is radiated inward. Nor only do green walls reduce cooling requirements but they also help to mitigate the urban heat island effect.
Interior Kamling Vertical Garden also helo to save energy during the summer. Through the process known as transpiration plants actually cool their surrounding environment slightly. With each additional plants this increases and therefore a green wall, with hundereds of plants, can reduce the temperature of room by anywhere from 3 to 7 °C. Some studies have shown that interior vertical garden can cut electricty bills by up to 20%!
During winter the Kamling Vertical Garden acts extra insulation. There is an additional layer of air between it and the wall which reduces the amount of heat escaping and cool air coming in.
Most people's reaction when seeing a Kamling Vertical Garden is 'wow this is a green building!' but other than simply looking green it can be used to earn additional LEED® credits. LEED®, which stands for the Leader ship in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized green building certification system. categories cover issues of sustainability, energy saving, indoor air quality, health and wellness, and acoustics, among others.
Kamling Vertical Garden qualifies directly for two LEED® credits and help gaing an additional thirty points.

In the environment full of concrete buildings, traffic, noise and pollution. Kamling Vertical Garden gives our children a direct channel to reach and feel the real plants and also increase their awarness of environment protection.
Living in urban environments, we are surrounded by concrete, traffic, noise and pollution. This is not healthy. It has a profound impact on our physical and mental wellness. Greenery softens this hard environment, acting as a tonic to ease stress and fatigue. Vertial Garden provide a substantial and spirtual connectin to nature which is missing in the modern convrete jungle.
Studied have shown that simply having a view of greenery increase workplace productivity. Futhermore, having indoors reduces symptoms of discomfort. THis decreases the number of day off due to "sickness". Gardens that are incorporated into hospital clam patients leading to the improvement in clinical outcomes and shortened stays.
Air quality is an important aspect of health and wellness and plants have been proven to filter and remove toxics. They also add energy rich oxygen, with each additional plant these benefits are multipled. A green wall with thousands of plants, therefore has a major positive impact.
Why is it that people feel more relaxed and less stressed around greenery? It is most likely due to man;s evolutionary bond with plants. According to some optometrists the human eye can distinguish between 2,000 shades of green was really important when you were about to eat it or use it for shelter or medicine. This cold be one of the reasons why we feel so comfortable around plants.
According to scientific reports carried out at American and European Universities, simply having a view of plants in working environment give positive physiological responses. This translate into greater employee efficiency which results in increased for a company.
What are the benefits of green walls?
- Reduces urban heat island effect and smog.
Cleans outside air of pollutants and dust and offsets the carbon footprint people and fuel emissions.
Cleans interior air space by removing VOCs and other harmful toxins like benezene and formaldehyde.
Acts as a sound proofing barrier.
Insulates and cools the building envelope, as well as protecting it from the elements.
Increase real estate value.
Speeds recovery time for patients through biphilic.
