buenos aires-based practice gonzalez moix arquitectura has recently completed a mixed-use commercial and office building in la molina, a suburb of lima, peru. boasting a raw material palette with a folding concrete structure imprinted with the wooden form work, steel, the project’s true treasure is the three-dimensional green wall designed by veronica crousse as a mural of recycled wooden planks fitted together like a haphazard puzzle with several kinds of plant species sprouting from the cracks and seams. a backdrop for the eight office spaces on the second and third floors, the living vertical sculpture provides a creative atmosphere and frames an exterior courtyard and terrace. at street level, a glass wall displays the ample commercial locale behind a large patio creating a spill-out space in front of the road.

  • the wall is rather Scarp-esque

    dbkii says:
  • Like the overall design and the green-wall. Wondering how long the wood will last. One can find references in almost any architectural work.

    mArkW says:
  • Felicitaciones Oscar, me encantó la fachada verde , lo simple y bonito del edificio.

    arquespo says:
  • Congratulations Oscar!
    the wood will last. We put a type of wood chosen for it\’s hardness and impenetrability. Besides, the water passes behind the wood wall, so the moisture that the wood receive is really a few drops of water here and there…

    Veronica Crousse says:
  • Is there any section throught that wall? how thick is it?
