If you still remember our previous post for Massimo Iosa Ghini‘s South Face installation in Milan last year, it is time for you to have a second thought and option when designing a vertical green for your project.

South Face is a solution for a wide range of uses: perfect, for instance as a facade, wall or partitioning wall it finds its habitat in both urban and private settings. The system consists in a modular insulating wall made in hollow eco-concrete elements to which a substrate has been added to house a thick and scenic vegetation. The facade turns into a real and proper vertical garden, which absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere and thermally insulates the inside rooms.
Declining a “rough” material like concrete into a typical Massimo Iosa Ghini soft touch is just as fascinating as its vertical modularity for eco-sustainable metropolitan gardens. South Face perfectly represents il Cantiere’s mission: investing in production and project research to take concrete into unexplored settings.
