G8A Architects together with rollimarchini architects have designed a factory building in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, that features a facade of plants.
The rows of plants line both the exterior facade, and the interior walls that open to a courtyard. The plants were chosen to help improve the quality of the air and the temperatures within the factory.
The horizontal planted beds also help to filter rain and sun, making the interior of the factory a more comfortable experience for the workers.
The interior courtyard is also a place for the workers to enjoy, with raised patches of grass and trees that will grow larger over time, creating a shaded canopy.
