Orléans Health Hub

Our third project was completed on June 10, 2021 with the installation of a living wall in the shape of a butterfly wing at the Orléans Health Hub in Ottawa, Ontario, a Health and Community Centre.

The living wall measures 27 square meters.

About the project

Our first project in Ontario

The living wall is located in the waiting room of the Services for Seniors program of the Orléans Health Hub, a unique and innovative model that brings a wide range of specialized and community healthcare services under one roof. Measuring 27 square meters (300 square feet), our living wall representing a butterfly wing is the first of its kind in Canada.

This living wall is a valuable addition to the Orléans Health Hub which opened its doors on June 24, 2021, and that all those who see it will appreciate not only its beauty but also the ability of nature to soothe.

We are really proud of this work of art!

This wall creates quite an impact in the environment and atmosphere of the Orléans Health Hub and makes the whole place much more zen.

"After settling Ms. Brenda (real name) in front of the wall, waiting for her appointment, she exclaimed "Gorgeous!" She told me that the wall brightened her wait".

The benefits of living walls

Living walls for health. 🍃🌱

"A recent experimental study conducted by Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) showed that air-flowing plant walls installed inside offices changed the microbiote affecting the health of employees' skin and enhanced immune system regulation. The effects could already be observed during one month."

An excellent news for our healthcare establisments!
