Today, façade greenings are by no means only to be found on old, romantic houses. The stainless steel mesh Webnet as a plant support blends well with modern architecture and enables an exact greening of the façade.
This apartment house in Antwerp is a good example for a façade greening in a modern architectural setting. The original idea to use cables for the greening was abandoned for the use of Webnet as a plant support. The net’s aesthetical and practical advantages made it the ideal solution in this context: in its uncovered state, it is more pleasing to the eye, integrates better with the façade and needs fewer suspensions. The Webnet cover also allows for a better direction of the plant growth making the greening a seamless part of the façade.
