Santalaia Building – Bogotá, Colombia

Santalaia Building

The Largest Vertical Garden in the World

This massive project consists of 42 vertical garden facades totaling 3,100 SQM and composed of 115,000 plants, that are irrigated by recycled wastewater collected from the drainage of the apartments’ showers. The system was enhanced to incorporate humidity and temperature sensors to optimize the irrigation dosing process. The plants cover is estimated to offset the carbon footprint produced by 700 people and generates the oxygen needed for 3,000 people, while also filtering out pollutants emitted by 745 cars.
