Happy International Green Wall Day! Let's show our planet some love and join us in sharing your special greenwall projects on
social media using the hashtag
#GreenWallDay. Greenwalls offer so many beautiful, cooling, biodiverse and biophilic benefits to the local environment (plus adding to the bottom line), both inside and out. Check out the lovely video created by Pritchard & Pritchard on our Events page.

Casa de Retiro Espiritual in southern Spain. Designed
by trailblazing green architect
Emilio Ambasz, "The House of Spiritual Retreat" is a merging of soft and hard, meandering and geometric, and modern and traditional, where modern aesthetic meets Arabian Moorish design, literally rooted within its Andalusian landscape.
