Mobile Living Partitions to Divide San Francisco’s Largest Patio Space:
San Francisco based company Habitat Horticulture installed 3 living wall partitions for The Metreon City View patio space owned by Westfield’s shopping malls looking over Yerba Buena Gardens. Comprised of succulents and sedums, the 3 freestanding mobile living wall partitions are used to break a 300 ft patio space that is used for cooperate events. They can be manipulated around to create a lush and intimate “living room” or aligned horizontally to close off the unused or private space.
The living wall partitions create functional gardens in a tight urban space, providing greenery for city dwellers and for the downtown area of San Francisco.

Lombard Street in San Francisco is the “Windiest Street in the World”, due to it’s concentrated curves down one city block (it’s quite straight elsewhere). We love it because all those curves allow for great greenery in-between!

FTA: “The living rooftop is tiled with 50,000 biodegradable trays made of coconut husks.” while awesome, i wonder what the lifespan on that roof will be.
