Lendlease is a leading international group in the real estate sector, particularly in the development of urban areas with projects in Australia, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Based in Sydney, Australia, it is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange and has approximately 13,100 employees worldwide. Lendlease’s vision is to create the best places; places that inspire and enrich the lives of people around the world. In Italy, the Group is active in two of the major urban regeneration projects in Milan: Milano Santa Giulia, a mixed tertiary and residential project, one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in the city, and MIND - Milano Innovation District, an innovation district where the new frontiers of technology and biosciences will converge. The Italian headquarters, located in Milan, has recently been restructured according to the most advanced sustainability and smart working criteria and is in process to obtain the LEED Gold certification for Commercial Interiors. The restructuring plan envisaged the placement of green surfaces integrated into the office, according to the biophilic principles. Verde Profilo® was chosen to realize green sceneries with a vertical garden at the entrance and plants placed in the office. Modernity and technology of our systems for vertical gardens allowed us to provide solution without necessity of discharge and charge of water, thanks to a circular irrigation system. The system in addition allows water saving because there’s no waste but a continuous recycling. The project involves the insertion of vases and punctual essences with hydroculture system that guarantees lush plants and minimum maintenance. Lendlease experiments with this design approach within its offices to re-proposing it in the development projects underway in Milan.
