“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous”-Aristotle
Time spent in nature is not only therapeutic but necessary. In order to possess a positive state of mental, emotional and spiritual health it is imperative that we expose ourselves to this wonderful experience. Walking through the forest, breathing in the sights and sounds-absolutely majestic. Until the six months of arctic tundra descend upon us in what has become a typical Canadian winter.
Sure, we can still brave the 40- winds, ice, and snow-covered paths and find tranquility as we freeze our ass-ends off, but there has to be a better way to surround ourselves with the wonders of nature. Break into the hallelujah chorus because GREENTERIORS has created a way to make it happen which is not only aesthetically pleasing but environmentally efficient.
Most of us love the great outdoors and wait with bated breath for the icy grip of winter to release us from its long and arduous hold. As the weather becomes more seasonal and we again are ensconced by the wonders of new growth, green lawns and plants and of course the warmer temperatures we realize just how much we have missed seeing green.
What if you could possess this option all year long?
News flash my friends-with the ingenious creations from GREENTERIORS it has now become not only a possibility but a reality. Biophilic design-the innovative approach to not only constructing but maintaining living walls and green roofs are their forte. Launched in 2016, GREENTERIORS is taking Hamilton by storm as they design, install and maintain living walls and green roofs.
These biophilic designs transfer the beauty of the outdoors into our homes, businesses and commercial spaces. This process allows us to enjoy the splendour and tranquility of living, breathing plants inside all year long, and I’m not talking about your half-dead ivy or Christmas cactus.
The fascinating element about living walls and green roofs is that not only are they exquisite to view, but also have real environmental benefits. Living walls and green roofs assist with heating and cooling of buildings-hello cheaper gas and hydro bills-by up to a whopping 25%!!! They absorb sound, assist with storm water management and reduce the risk of flash flooding. It is also feasible to create signage and LOGOS generating a focal point for business and commercial space.
GREENTERIORS prides themselves on the highest standard of excellence and creativity. Their reputable quality and expertise are unprecedented. With a goal of becoming a compelling presence in Hamilton, the concept of “bringing the outside in” the health-minded option of these biophilic designs has the ability to transform both the exterior and interior of any building in our community.
In 2009, Toronto mandated that buildings exceeding 2000m2 must incorporate the green roof technology. Hamilton can do better! Come on! We have the Ti-Cats, the Bulldogs and a community eager to embrace economic trends. These options will only serve to generate the most beautiful city in Southwestern Ontario while instilling environmental awareness and health benefits to our citizens.
If you are a business owner searching for a solution to not only become more environmentally aware but to also impress your clientele, you need to check out the options available at GREENTERIORS. For all of you homeowners-get in front of the trend and be the first one in your neighbourhood to rock the living wall or green roof concept-your friends will be so jelly.
