Aplantis from Switzerland is an architectural office that designs, calculates and realises modern green spaces in, on, and around buildings. In 2022, Aplantis’s innovative solution was awarded the first prize for indoor green construction by German BuGG (Bundesverband GebäudeGrün) respected in European architectural circles.
In the award-winning project, the green interiors designed and realised by Aplantis were planted in sheet steel boxes designed and implemented by Meconet with utilisation of Meconet’s prototype skills – design assistance and production.
The boxes were landscaped to be inconspicuous; they followed the building’s forms, allowing the greenery growing out of the boxes and extending downwards like a room divider curtain to rightfully play the key role. In addition to functionality, the green interior design resulted in cleaner indoor air and visual pleasure.
Meconet and Aplantis have now carried out two projects together. Both parties have enjoyed the experience so much that the cooperation is expected to continue.
“We share a similar world of values with Meconet, as well as the curiosity needed to always do things better than before. We are very happy to have found a partner like Meconet for our projects,” says Gerhard Zemp, a Founding Member of Aplantis.
“The award-winning project was a good display of our prototype skills. Aplantis is a customer with powerful visions and the desire to also understand our operations as good as possible. Working with them is a pleasure,” says Tomi Ropanen, Account Manager at Meconet.
