South Face

Manufacturer: Il Cantiere

Curved elements made from ultrahigh-performance Ductal concrete from Lafarge which has a lower carbon footprint than standard concrete combine to form green walls (top) with pockets to support air-purifying vegetation. Ideal for urban-garden applications, the hollow, modular units are also insulated for use as facades, interior walls, or partitions in residential and commercial settings.
