The bushy native plants sprout from hollow trapezium-shaped panels on two faces of the building.
Named the Vertical Living Gallery, the showroom houses a gallery and offices for the sale of apartments.
Vertical louvres shade the windows between the green panels.
This showroom is the second green-walled building featured on Dezeen this week - see our earlier story about a plant-covered tower by Eduoard François.

Vertical Living Gallery
Bring nature along as you move upwards.
While Bangkok living ground has been rising up, little does the green area rise. This green envelope is designed for condominium sale office gallery, a place where a new urban living definition is displayed.
The module green wall crate is made from stainless steel for easy construction. Hanging plant pots and drip irrigation are installed behind the felt. This system is inexpensive and convenient to construct. Considering the locality, we selected local plant, Tokyo Dwarf which is normally found on ground. It can stand very well under Bangkok’s extreme environment. The texture of plant also softens the rigidity and stand out among Bangkok complex structure. While thin member and angled one, once lightened, express another dimension of the surface, contrasting to the flat surface of high-rise.
